10 Outdoor Summer Activities for Toddlers

With summer in full force, I’ve compiled a list of our favorite 10 outdoor summer activities for toddlers. If we stay inside too much, both Piper and I will go a little stir crazy. Just getting outside for an hour makes the biggest difference in our day. This has also made me realize how essential it is to have a yard space that feels groomed, managed, and safe to play in. Terminix offers so many services outside of termites, including ants, spiders, and mosquitos that you don’t want hanging around during your play time!

1 | Baby pool. We love our little $10 baby pool purchase. On a hot summer day where’s it’s a little too miserable warm to play at the park, we’ll fill this thing with water and splash around for hours. We’ll practice putting our head under and blowing bubbles, and Piper is currently obsessed with bringing all the leaves in it too.

2 | Swimming pool. We don’t have access to a real swimming pool, but we’re highly considering a membership at the Y just for this reason. Outdoor splash park, anyone!? We have some friends with neighborhood pools, so we love when we get to meet up with them.

3 | Splash pads. When you aren’t up for a pool day, a splash pad is such a fun alternative. And they’re free!

4 | Bubbles. Piper loves when we blow bubbles outside. Given, she might not fully get the concept yet and I might have caught her trying to figure out how to drink it a time or two, but blowing bubbles always gets a good set of giggles!

5 | Play at the park. We are fortunate to have so many great parks near us, and we can switch it up often. The slide still makes me a little nervous, but Piper is so brave and always wants to climb up and go down herself.

6 | Chalk. We found these adorable donut and ice cream shaped chalk sticks at Target, and Piper kept trying to lick the ice cream one, haha. She’ll scribble around on the pavement, in between her pool splashing.

7 | Picnic. When we’re tired of being cooped up inside, sometimes we’ll take our meal outside and turn it into a picnic! It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a blanket and a solid spread of fruit and cheerios can do the trick ;)

8 | Play in the sprinkler. Do you see a pattern, and can you tell it feels like a million degrees in South Carolina this summer!? When we feel like we’ve exhausted the baby pool but are dying to go outside, we’ll run through the sprinkler together. Piper calls it “rain, rain” ;).

9 | Take a trip to the zoo. Since we’re learning all of the different animal noises right now, it’s fun to go to the zoo and let her put a live animal with the noises. This is also a great thing to meet up and do with other moms, and get a little adult conversation time in too ;)

10 | Kick the soccer ball. This simple activity is one of our favorites. Scofield grew up playing soccer, so of course he’s completely convinced she’s going to be the most stellar soccer player. I don’t doubt it. This is such an easy way to get her energy out, too. She’d chase that soccer ball around the back yard all day, I swear.
