5 outdoor toys the whole family can enjoy
Toys aren’t just for kids — especially in the summer, when more families spend time together outside.
Here are five outdoor toys that can help entertain the whole family this summer.
1. Go fly a kite. There are some elaborate, incredible kites out there that can amuse even the most engineer-brained parent. Bonanza.com is selling a 3D red dragonfly kite that is beautiful and eye-catching, for only $16.99.
2. Kick it up a notch: Go fly a helicopter. There are some hard-core adult toy helicopter collectors out there, making this a hobby that crosses all ages. Options span from an inexpensive $18 HammerHead Pro Series micro-copter at Tmart, to something more pricey, like the $500 Blade 450X — with its advanced high-performance technology that “practically defies physics.” Find the Blade 450X at Hobby Zone, and use this coupon code to get free shipping on orders over $100.
3. Raise live butterflies. Watch your little caterpillars grow into stunning Painted Lady butterflies. The Bugville Live Butterfly Treehouse by Spin Master Toys costs only $14.99 and is a great outdoor activity that kids can enjoy with their parents.
4. Play a few yard games together, like Top Toss ($52.97 on Amazon.com), which combines elements from various yard games. Don’t forget the ever-popular “ladder toss” game, too, like this Franklin Sport Golf Toss, $49.99, at Sports Authority.
