With school out for summer this week, I have been looking for ways to keep the kids entertained and active this summer. Most of our days are spent outside playing in the yard, so I have been slowly adding to our outdoor bins that we store in the garage. On nice days, we pull the whole bin in the driveway and the kids are free to pick and choose whatever they want to play with, trucks, sidewalk chalk, balls, and Nerf toys.
3 Favorite Outdoor Activities:
Chalk roads: A few years back a friend of mine drew roads out of chalk in our driveway for my oldest son, and ever since that day, our driveway is often turned into chalk city. While I often get stuck drawing all of the roads, and parking lots, the kids often add their own personal touches with houses, sidewalks, restaurants, and stop signs. It takes me just a few minutes in the morning to draw up all the roads, but it provides hours upon hours of imaginative and active play all day long.
Riding bikes/scooters: Riding bikes and scooters is my youngest son’s favorite outdoor activity. As soon as he wakes up in the morning, he asks to go outside and ride his bike, and he’ll be out there until nightfall. During the rain, you can catch him riding his scooter or bike in our garage, there’s no stopping him once the snow melts.
Nerf toys: Even as a child, Nerf toys have always been a big part of summertime fun. Between the Nerf balls, super soakers and the Hasbro’s Nerf N-Strike Elite Demolisher 2-in-1 Blaster, the boys are sure to have a blast this summer. Trevor has been spending his days outdoors with his Nerf N-Strike Elite Demolisher 2-in-1 Blaster looking for tracks and “hunting” just like his Dad.
Toys “R” Us is the perfect one stop shop to pick up your favorite summer toys and game. But in order to get those toys working, make sure to pick up Duracell batteries while at Toys“R”Us! Batteries are often needed, but rarely come pre-packaged in toys, so don’t miss out on the fun, and make sure to stock up on Duracell the next time you’re at Toys”R”Us .
