Backyard Fun (Sunny Side Up)

I hope you’re enjoying the weekend! I’m popping in quick to share some of our favorite backyard toys. Every summer I order a few new things from Walmart to entertain the kids (they have so many fun options!) and I’ve definitely figured out what works best for my 3 and their friends.

{watermelon float raft}

Festive pool rafts are a no brainer and this watermelon has been Kole’s favorite this summer. Perfect to spread out on and it looks cute in the pool when the kids aren’t using it. Bonus for mom. :)

Addison has claimed the pineapple and loves laying on it to tan. Which is why Kole loves to steal it when she’s not paying attention. Siblings! He has way too much fun annoying her.

{light up bean bag toss set}

Another hit this summer is this light up bean bag toss. Kole has always loved this simple game and after playing it at every hotel we stay in I finally bought him his own set. I didn’t take a night pic but this particular set is fun because it lights up when it’s dark! There are lots of other fun bean bag toss options here.

My girls’ friends are always so sweet to hang with Kole when they are over! Not that they have much of a choice. If there is a party going on Kole’s not missing out. Ha.

Victory! And Addison got her pineapple back. :)

This trac-ball set was seriously the smartest $7 I’ve spent this summer!

The kids all love this simple game and toss the ball back and forth in the pool, out of the pool and all over the yard. It’s a hit and they are getting really good at it!

A few other outdoor toys I always have on hand.. super soakers, water blasters, small sports balls and diving toys. When my girls were little I ordered toy mermaids and dolls that could get wet.

With boys you can’t go wrong with squirt guns!

If your kids have favorite outdoor toys they love that I didn’t mention please share them with me! I’m always looking for fun options. I shared a few other past favorites above. Rope swings and water slides on the grass are always a hit and my kids were obsessed with their razor scooters and ride on cars for years! Also here’s a fun idea if you have little kids.. try giving them a bucket full of water and a paint brush. Send them outside and tell them to “paint” the wall or fence or whatever you have in your yard. My girls loved “painting ” when they were little! A paint brush and bucket of water kept them entertained for hours. :)

  1. Great post, as always! Loved seeing your kiddos enjoying the rafts and other toys. Such a beautiful pool area! Also loved the bucket of water and paint brush idea for my little toddler granddaughter 😍. Happy 4th, Erin! Enjoy your posts so much!

  2. Erin,
    This is a quick one. Away and with family and THIS is the first free moment (free moment by MYSELF!) I have had since Fri.! :-O
    The pineapple float is in my basket. When back home I will complete my order. HOW does that work with your sponsors?
    Do you HAVE to complete the order RIGHT AWAY for YOU to get credit?? Pineapple- perfect for my pool at my federal house!
    The Pineapple was the symbol of hospitality in colonial times! I Have pineapple wall art in dining room and a pineapple chandelier! SO N.E.!
    PS Boys summer bedroom-Thumbs WAY up!

  3. Such a fun post that brings back memories of my days hanging out by the pool in our backyard when I was growing up. So many fun toys. I think we had a water volley ball net at one point and a basketball hoop. My favorite was the chaise lounger that floated in the pool complete with cup holder. Great for floating! Thanks for sharing and igniting the trip down memory lane. Happy 4th of July to you and your sweet family! Hope you have a fabulous holiday.

    1. Thank you so much Jeanne! I’ve been looking for a good basketball hoop! Such a fun idea. I agree though.. the chaise lounger takes the cake every time. Especially if it has a cup holder.. ha! That’s when you know you’re living your best life. ;) Wishing you a wonderful week! xo
