In addition to the all time favorite - sprinkler, what are some of your 3 year olds favorite outdoor toys and activities?

Bubbles, the toy lawn mower and the fishing rod! Give DS the 3 of these and he's as happy as a clam.

DD loves her sandbox and swimming pool more than anything. She also has a Cozy Coupe that she loves to wash and put "gas" in, but she rarely actually drives the thing around.

DS loves swimming and since he isn't a pro yet he has a "puddle jumper" life vest and it is the best invention ever!...
Outside of swimming he loves his water guns, if he could he would have me chasing him and vice-versa all day everyday! Another big hit with his is the grow-with-me roller skates!
He's def not a child that will sit in a car or sandbox for any period of time!

Sidewalk chalk is a big hit.

We have an outdoor playhouse. I give my 4 year old a bucket of water and a paint brush and she goes to town! I got the idea from a Mommy & Me class I took with my oldest daughter years ago.

The 7 year old and 4 year old like to play together to make "mud soup". I give them a pan, a few pitchers of water and put them by the patchy dirt area in our backyard. They add leaves, lemons, rocks - anything they find in the back yard, It's a mess but so cute to hear them not fighting!

DD1 - 7.5 years old, on her way to 2nd grade!
DD2 - Turned 4 in June, loves to keep up with the big kid
