Water Table for ToddlersWater Table for Toddlers

A water table is a must have outdoor play equipment for any toddler. Kids can spend hours splashing, floating boats, and filling it with dirt to make mud. In the cooler months you can fill it with sand or even clay or make moon sand (flour and baby oil mixed) to fill it. Leave it empty kids will get creative with what they can put in a water table. My own kids have had one for several years, they are 6 and 4 and I have no plans to get rid ours anytime soon. It has held water, colored water, mud, clay, moon sand, and regular sand. It has been well worth the price. If you have more than one young child, do buy one with lots of space to fit all the kids around the table. Otherwise there will be a fight over the water table. We have the pirate ship water table which for two kids is plenty of space.

outdoor playsets for toddlers Little Tikes Castle Slide

Your toddler climbs up the rock wall, plays pirate ship at the top with the steering wheel and then slides down the slide. Perfect for 1, 2, and 3 year olds. This is similar to the model my kids had at this age. It was durable, even when left outside year round. The slide end does fit nicely over the side of a small toddler pool, so in the summer your toddler can have a waterslide %u2013 use only with supervision of course. It is a little more challenging for the very young toddlers to figure out the rock wall, but it%u2019s a good challenge in teaching coordination and strength.

outside toys for toddlers Toddler Bubble Lawn Mower

As your toddler pushes this mow to be just like mommy or daddy working in the yard, bubbles blow out. Switches and buttons make clicking and vroom noises. The only complaint is that the bubble formula is too thick, but once you dilute it a bit it works well. That’s actually nice because then the bubbles will last longer and save you money on refills.

Toddlers can race or go to “work” in their very one car. They must use their feet to move the car and steer. Great for imagination play and developing physical strength. Some have a little compartment in the back to pack and carry treasures. Spend the extra money and get the trailer that goes with it. My son would spend all day outside pulling stuff around in his trailer.
