Toddlers are usually tougher than people think - the little bruisers need something to get their teeth into (sometimes literally!). And that includes toys. No more need for the nursery toys of their baby days - Hey look at me, I'm a big boy now!
Toys that help them through play to develop their gross motor skills can be fun as well.
With summer here it is good for kids to be outside in the fresh air as much as desirable. And your little ones will enjoy being out even more if they can have fun with you or other kids.

The ball is not a standard soccer ball but a rubber blow-up one that is safer for this age group. No sore red face after the ball has been whacked hard!

What's the recipe for that, I hear you ask. Simple, I reply...
Take the ball and blow it up.
Add a water hose and let the water squish out of the sprinklers.
Now add some kids and a warm sunny day - perfect!

Let the fun begin.
It really is that easy. And you can water your grass at the same time!
