Garden toys for 5 yo
10

2lilcherubs · 30/01/2022 14:16

We recently moved house, new garden is pretty small and all decked. Not big enough for a trampoline etc.

Looking for ideas for toys to have in the garden for kids to play with.
Got bikes and scooters and a kitchen. Can't decide what else to get that is suitable for on decking and not to big that wont be out grown too soon.
Kid ages 5yo and 3.5yo

AquaqPlay has been popular in our house; basically a water tray but with little characters and stuff.

Mud kitchen, my 2 spend hours playing all year round. They tend to use water and bubbles rather than mud plus flowers and stones etc

Thanks all.
Been looking at a swing ball, so will order that tonight.

They have a kitchen for the garden. Defo will get water play for summer time but need ideas for things to order now. Want them to be out more.

IKEA tunnel
play tent
things to build an obstacle course - hoops and cones etc.
den building kit (plus a fabric shower curtain to cover the den & make a hiding place inside) - www.amazon.co.uk/Construction-Building-Pieces-Playhouse-Making/dp/B09KTS43YG/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=den+building+kit&tag=mumsnetforu03-21&qid=1643581816&sr=8-9

It is good to have things that can be moved about & reconfigured a lot. One thing that sits on one place is great for 3 days & then the kids get bored of it.

I've bought my daughter a wooden sandpit / play pirate ship for her 5th birthday (younger sister is 2)

Got it in Aldi for an absolute bargain though, not sure I would pay £200 for it.

When we had a small garden we had a picnic table where the centre piece lifted out and the middle was a sandpit or could be used as water tray or a variety of things. It worked well for quite a while as you could change around what was in the table and they could have a picnic at the table too.

This sort of thing - https://www.johnlewis.com/tp-toys-tp286-deluxe-picnic-table-sandpit/p231855090?sku=231855090&sppc=2dx92700064093650967&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInueVitfa9QIViK3tCh0OxwACEAQYASABEgKxQPDD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
