Raincoat & Rain boots-We bought these raincoats for the kids last year and I am a big fan of them because they aren't like your traditional raincoat that is just heavy and stiff. It's light and water runs off. Perfect for going to play in the rain. You can easily add a layer underneath if you're worried about warmth.
Waterbottle -I know the YETI water bottles are high up there on price but friends...they actually last. Ours have survived toddler and now preschool years. It has fallen out of the vehicle and been thrown and still works great! Plus, It will keep your child's water cold in the summer. They need to stay hydrated so you are going to want to have a durable bottle that keeps it cold. No one wants to drink hot water to hydrate.
Sensory Table/Water Table-This sensory table is SO easy to set up and take down. I store it on the side of the closet. The bins (sold separately) can stay in the with the flat pieces on top if you wanted to keep it up all the time. I love our sensory table so much my biggest regret was not spending the money on it sooner.
Waterbeads -if you haven't put waterbeds in your sensory table you are missing out. These are the coolest sensory base ever! Child and adult tested. They are small so use your best judgment when it comes to using them.
Bounce House -I know this sounds crazy, but we had one gifted to us (very similar to this one and we use it all the time. It is the PERFECT summer toy especially when we have other kids over to play. We even set it up in our garage in the winter months. For storage we just stuff it in a large tote.
Bug Catcher you're little explorer will love digging and exploring with these tools and they will be able to use them for years to come
Slide I like that this slide is a 2 in 1 with the basketball hoop perfect for taking up less space
Outdoor Art Easel This is very easy clean up because you just wash everything (including the kids) down with the hose outside
Picasso Tiles we use these EVERYDAY! I use them for their learning activities and they use them for playing. The imagination and problem solving these are incredible! These are the "cheaper" brand of the Magna Tiles but we haven't noticed a difference besides price but if you are looking for the original magna tiles you can find them HERE
Sandbox- We build a sandbox with the benches and we loved it! It was perfect for Owen (1.5yr) who wanted to play in the sand but not actually sit in it. Plus, comfortable for parents as well. This one I found here is neat that it has a canopy AND it works as a cover too to keep it closed up when not in use.
