Springtime is the perfect time to stock up on fresh sidewalk chalk, bright coloured skipping ropes, new soccer balls and lawn darts. My husband likes to say "You need the right tools for the job" and, in this case, if you want to inspire kids to get active outside, providing a few fun incentives is a great way to get them started.
The weather is finally getting warmer, the days are longer and the kids are eager to get outside so we plan a family hike or go geocaching in the forest.
Here are a few ideas of outdoor toys kids love that will entice them outside to play and get kids of all ages excited about having fun and being active.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on balls of all shapes and sizes, or skipping ropes and kites but giving your kids a few of these Springtime gifts will inspire them to be active for the months ahead. You might even find yourself out there trying to remember how to double Dutch!
