Outdoor fun for the family

10 Sep 2020

With spring almost upon us, it's high time to start looking for ways to make the most of the great outdoors. Because is there really anything better than the smell of freshly cut grass and a neighbour's BBQ? We’ve prepared some family favourites to try when the sun is shining. ​

Scootin' around​
Every child (and adult's) favourite outdoor activity. Bikes and scooters to zip around the neighbourhood can be found at Sportspower, Rebel, Big W and Target, or even try your balance at a pogo stick?

Crafternoon in the sun​
Grab some chalk and some masking tape from Lincraft and create your own masterpieces on your driveway or outdoor pavement. Trust us, for such little equipment and thought, it's a hit with the little ones!

Curious kids​
For the little ones with a keen eye for insects and wildlife, why not try a bug catcher/creeper keeper from QBD Books Australian Geographic range? Who knows, you may have a future Entomologist on your hands!

Budding green thumb
Why not enlist the help of your mini-me whilst doing the gardening next? Chances are, they want to play copy-cat and help out, even if that does mean shovelling dirt. Big W has a range of gardening tools for the little ones. Make it an afternoon of family fun! ​

Picnic and play
Pick up some snacks and simple ingredients and have the kids help build a delicious picnic hamper! Get started with favourites from Bakers Delight and Charlesworth Nuts and for the perfect picnic basket, visit Harris Scarfe.

Lawn games
Who can forget a good ol' game of Giant Jenga, Wooden Skittles/bowling or Kubb? You'll find a range of family favourites at Rebel Sport, sure to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours.
