7 Fun Products to Get Kids Outside

Keeping kids active and entertained during the summer can be challenging. I try to send mine outside as much as possible. But sometimes I need fun games or other products to encourage them to spend that time outdoors. One of my go-to resources for inspiration is Hearthsong. This year is no exception.

Here are seven products I found on their site that are super fun. I'm listing these in order of age range, starting with products that the youngest kids can enjoy.

Giant Kick Croquet Game

Giant Kick Croquet Game ($34.98) Ages 4+

Kickball plus croquet equals....super-sized outdoor active play! This outside game for kids combines the fun of running and kicking a ball (kickball), plus the added attraction of guiding it through a course of wickets (croquet). Practice your aim AND kicking skills while playing a fun game!

You can make the course as hard or as easy as you wish just by the way you space the seven wickets, so many ages and skill levels can get a kick out of it. Challenge a friend or a sibling, team up with mom or dad, and enjoy an afternoon of kicking and laughing!

The game comes with two giant 14" diam., cloth-covered balls, seven colorful wickets, and two finish flags. Some simple assembly required.

Inflatable Easel with Paints

Inflatable Easel with Paints ($49.98) Ages 3+

Nurture your child's inner Diego Rivera!! How fun is this inflatable easel? It's huge! Enjoy art anywhere—even (and especially) outdoors—with this heavy-duty vinyl inflatable easel. It makes a popular gathering place at birthday parties and play dates, where kids can paint (or finger paint) with abandon right on it, then just hose it off to be ready for another day. Includes four paints, four shaped sponges, and a paintbrush. Just inflate to start creating. Approx. 5½'H.

Jumbo 3-in-1 Adjustable Three-Square Game Set

Jumbo 3-in-1 Adjustable Three-Square Game Set ($139.00) Ages 6+

Combine three favorite classic games, oversized playing pieces, and an adjustable net that suits every age—and you've got the perfect backyard activity for the whole family! Large lightweight rackets (three included) are easy to grasp while players volley the oversized birdies (two included), volleyball or tennis ball.

The sturdy net forms three playing squares (each 6'W); double-up the net on one side for a more traditional two-player set up. And if you want to adjust the net for smaller players, simply remove the middle pole to shorten the height from 5½'-3¾'.

This portable game comes with a carrying bag so you can take it with you wherever the family wants to play—on vacation, at the beach or at a friend's house. Easy adult assembly required. Eight ground stakes and a needle pump are included. Please note—the net does not stand on its own and must be staked into the ground.
