50 Outdoor Activities to do with your Toddler


I don’t know about you and your kids, but we LOVE to play outside. I love it because it keeps the house from looking like a tornado came through. The kids probably love it for other reasons. Here are some of our absolute favorite outdoor activities. If you are looking for a birthday present or just more outdoor activities, I have posted links to products that go with the activities. (These are affiliate links, and I do receive a small fee if you click through and buy the product here. Please know I only recommend products I love and would use myself.)

The links below are affiliate links. If You purchase an item from the links below, I will receive a small fee or commission (at no extra cost to you). However, I can assure you that all opinions stated below are my own. I do not share products that I do not use and love, myself. Please visit my Disclosure and Privacy Policy for more information!

    What a great list! I love that you have a variety of activities that would match toddlers with different personalities! Cannot wait until my son is older to try some of these (he’s only 8 months old). Particularly the building a fort and water balloon fight! 🙂
