I cannot believe how fast summer got here.  This will be my 3rd summer as a stay-at-home mom and while I do enjoy it, they can be long.  That is why it’s essential to have the right toys to get through it.  These are 7 of my boys very favorite ones.

I will also be sharing these at 7pm every night this week on Facebook so ‘Like’ our page in case you aren’t able to refer back to this post.  So let’s get started!

7 Must Have Toys to Survive Summer with kids

This is Radio Flyer Ziggle is just one of the fun things we got the boys to enjoy over the summer. Little A has gotten so fast on it I have to run away so he doesn’t mow me down.

This Little Tikes Deluxe Ride and Relax Wagon with Umbrella has ALL the bells & whistles. When not in use it can be used as a bench. We take ours to the park with a packed lunch and enjoy the afternoon.

We just got Little A one of these KaZAM v2e No Pedal Balance Bike, 12-Inch, Blue. I like that he doesn’t get his feet caught up in the wheels. It’s also teaching him the fundamentals of balancing which is the hardest part of learning to ride a bike.

Little A plays in his Step2 WaterWheel Activity Play Table all the time. This is the same exact one we have. It’s simple without a lot of parts so it’s easy to put up when he’s done playing for the day.  Here he is playing in it while I wrote this post.  Fun!
Kids Water Table Play

Skip the store brought pops & get creative making your own with the Reusable DIY Frozen Ice Cream Pop Molds Ice Lolly Makers-011. The boys LOVE Mango & Strawberry, their favorite.

Hitting the beach with your little ones? Toys Icon Sand Bucket Baby Beach Toys Set, Small, 16 Piece are a classic toy for all ages. Ours get lots of use over the summer at Lake Michigan.

We started Little A out on this Chillafish Quadie Grow-with-Me 4-Wheel Ride On, Lime at Christmas. He recently upgraded but he still whips around the house on it. Check out our Instagram to see how fast he gets around the table.

    Wow, that wagon is amazing. They have some so far from just a crate on wheels. It looks perfect for a park picnic.

      I agree! We do love this wagon. When it’s not in use we move it to the bench position for the little one to sit in while we’re out in the yard.
