Summertime is in full swing around here, which means finding easy ways to keep the kiddos busy! While I was at World Market the other day, picking up a new lamp, I spotted an entire section of fun outdoor toys and activities for kids. Who knew they had so many fun and unique things for kids! I loaded up my cart and created a fun summer bucket list for our family. From s’mores to bubbles, we’ve had a blast creating summertime memories. You can check out our list of 20 outdoor summer activities for kids below. Can’t wait to hear what’s on your list this summer!
