Water Toys for Outdoors

With summer right around the corner, you may be starting to think about ways to keep your toddler occupied and cool outside. Outdoor water toys are the perfect way to do that!

Playing outside in the water is one of our favorite summer activities. I feel like almost every child loves water. It’s something they don’t get to play with all the time. Plus they can get wet with no consequences – it’s a win win!

Both of my kids love when we pull out the water toys and they have since they were toddlers. It really doesn’t matter what it is – if it involves water, they are in!

Sprinkle and Splash Mat

A splash pad is such a fun water toy. I love it because the kids can run through it or sit and play in it.

The great thing about this one is the sides curve up so even if you shut the water off, it keeps some water in it so the kids can continue to play even with the water off!

Buckets of Fun Backyard Waterpark

This fun backyard waterpark has several different water elements. It will definitely keep the kids busy and wet for a while!

Anchors Away Pirate Ship Water Table

My kids have always loved playing in a water table. There are so many different elements to play with.

Plus if it’s not quite warm enough for a larger water toy, like a splash pad or sprinkler, this is the perfect solution to get a little wet, but not soaked.

Water Blaster Soaker

These fun blasters can be used for shooting at fences or sides of the house!

Play Kitchen Sink

This fun play kitchen sink that uses real water is super fun for outdoor play! It easily incorporates water play with pretend play.

The kids can pretend they are playing restaurant or house. But no doubt the sink will be the highlight of this toy!


My favorite thing about sprinklers is they can be as small and simple or as big as you want! Check out these super fun ones!
