Best Outdoor Toys for 6 to 8 Year Olds

Looking for outdoor toys so 6 to 8 year olds can burn off some energy!

Look no further we have tons of ideas of the best toys for this age range.

From bows and arrows to throw and catch games, stomp rockets to scooters, hoverboards to trampolines - there is something to suit every child.

Tetherball Set


I have fond memories of playing tetherball when I was a child and I enjoy playing it with my son now too. Swingball involves hitting a ball with a bat so that it travels up or down a metal pole. Swingball helps develop hand and eye co-ordination which is great when learning to play other sports too like baseball. It's great fun and can be played on your own or with another person.

We have this and we quite often have a game. My son enjoys playing it on his own too.

Scooter

A scooter is one of the most used toys that my son has. He's 8 now but has had one since he was 4 year old and he uses it the most out of any of his outdoor toys. He scoots to school nearly everyday. We also use it in the park and he scoots around outside the house too.

Trampoline

Trampolines are great fun to have in the backyard. When friends come over everybody wants to have a turn jumping. Its important to be aware of safety and make sure that the trampoline has a secure safety net.
I also just encourage standard jumping up and down to avoid the risk of landing awkwardly. Other safety tips include just one using the trampoline at the time, keeping watch and no rough and tumble on the trampoline.

Before choosing a trampoline make sure you have space in your backyard. It will need to be placed on flat level ground too.

Inflatable Pool

In the hot weather, inflatable pools offer hours of fun. At Grandma's house, all the cousins spend hours playing in the inflatable pool.
You can get all kinds of inflatable pools with slides, squirters and other activities.

Stomp Rocket Stunt Planes

If you want something with a high fun factor, you can't go wrong with these stunt rocket.

Get kids running and jumping around outdoors.

Run, jump and launch the stunt planes.

This would be a fab toy to play in a big open space. For example at the park. Adults will most definitely want a go at these too.

OgoSport Mini OgoDisk ​

 

This is a really versatile outdoor toy that is actually fun for all ages.
It can be used solo as a ball trampoline. Bounce the ball on it's own on the disk.
The disks can be used as frisbees.
Or why not play throw and catch with the balls with another person.
This is a great toy, especially in the summer. It's perfect to take to the park and practise throw and catch skills. Great for improving hand and eye co-ordination.

Jump Rope

Jump rope is a great skill to teach a 6 to 8 year olds. It's fun, great for hand and eye-co-ordination and cardiovascular health.

​It's inexpensive. It's a very portable activity and can be done anywhere there is a space big enough to swing a rope.

The jump rope featured comes in different sizes for children and can be cut down and adjusted if it's too long.

EzyRoller Classic Ride On

This is a unique ride on toy that's perfect for the 6 to 8 year old age group.

Riders use right-left leg movements, pushing the footbar back and forth to move along.

It's tons of fun and can be used indoors or outdoors.

The classic ride on is extendable so it grows with your child. It's suitable for kids from 4 years but teens can use this ride on too!

Ball

Playing ball is another cheap and inexpensive activity which is very portable. My son loves playing soccer, so we will quite often take a ball to the park and practise soccer skills (passing, tackling, dribbling and other skills). We set up goals and one of us will be the goalkeeper and the other will try to score.
You can also play throw and catch games with a ball.

Hoola Hoops

Hoola hooping is another inexpensive toy. There are lots of games you can play with a hoola hoop which help develop all kinds of skills from hand and eye co-ordination to developing fine and gross motor skills. Some ideas include:

Throwing he hoop up in the air and catch it.
Place hoola hoops on the floor next to each other and jump in and out of the hoola hoops.
Race two hoola hoops along the ground
Spin the hoop with your arm
Jump through a hoola hoop instead of jumping rope

Or of course you can hoola hoop with the hoop around your waist. Learning how to hoola hoop can be tricky but it's great for perseverance when learning a new skill. After a few minutes practice everyday kids should be able to pick it up.

Bike

My son learned to ride his bike aged 6 and he really enjoys it. He rides on his bike at the park and outside the house. I am hoping to get myself a bike so we can go on bike rides together.

You can get used kids bikes in good condition as kids tend to grow out of their bikes fairly quickly, so its worth looking on ebay or craigslist. Make sure you buy the right size bike for your child as the wrong size bike will make it more difficult for them to learn how to ride.

A 20 inch bike is normally a good size for a 7 - 8 year old.

Razor FlashRider 360 Caster Trike

Kids love the flash rider. If you want to get them outside, this really does have the fun factor.

It can throw fast 360 degree spins and still keep on cruising.

Basketball

8 years old can be a nice age to get a first basketball.

Buying a first basketball can provide hours of entertainment.

Kids can learn to bounce, throw it and shoot hoops. Take it to the local park.

8 year old will want the smallest size which is a size 5.

Basketball hoop

Basketball hoops and stand are a great way to get kids outdoors, moving around, practicing their hand/eye co-ordination, building their strength, stamina and burning off energy.

Look for a basketball hoop that can easily be height adjusted as it will grow with your child.

Also look for one which is weather and rust resistant.

 

Water Squirters

Some of the most fun my son has in the summer is with a water gun. He loves having water fights and running around trying to get his friends wet and his friends try and get him back! Obviously, water fights have to be planned and organised as well as saved for hot summer days.

However, water guns can also be used for target practice. Set up a target and try and squirt it with water. Water squirters are also great fun to be used in inflatable pools too.

Outdoor Toys for 2 to 4 Year Olds

A Rollercoaster?!

 

 

 

This is a rollercoaster suitable for 2 - 5 year olds. However, I've seen younger kids have a go on this too but they have to be closely supervised.
It's a car that goes on a downhill ride with another smaller bump halfway through. I had to include it in my list as it's so much fun.
We used one at a toddler group we used to go to. All the kids loved this. It is one they used to fight over! They also enjoyed pulling and pushing the car along the track as well as riding in it.
It can be set up in the outside in the summer and inside when the weather isn't too good if you have the space.
Older kids enjoy having a go on the rollercoaster as well.

Push Along And Ride On Cars

We have a cozy coupe car for my son and he loves it. We actually use ours most indoors at first but we use it outdoors now. My little boy loves his car. He's heading towards his 3rd birthday and still plays in it nearly everyday. They also have these cars at the nursery my son goes to and they are incredibly popular.
My sons, nephews and nieces also love the push car kept at Grandma's house. They both love to just sit in it or be pushed round and round the garden.  A great toy for a 2 year old.

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe

 



 

This is the dino car version of the cozy coupe.

There is also an moving, clicking ignition switch and an open-and-close gas cap. Kids like the gas cap and will pretend to fill the car up with gas.

There's cup holders in the rear.

It's perfect for use on flat surfaces and can be used indoors and outdoors. There's a handle on the back so parents can push their little one around. There is also a removable floor so kids can use their feet to move as well.

Water Play Table

 



 

My 2 year old loves his water play table and spent ages playing with it with his 3 year old friend just the other day.

​It's a great toy on a Summer's day as the children can splash as much water and get as wet at they want. My son will play with it for a long time giving me the chance to have a break in the sunshine.

There's lots of cool play opportunities in the table opposite. It includes a 13 piece acccessory set with a rubber duck, squirting frog, fish, 5 maze pieces, a large bucket, 1 flipper adn three water scooping tools.

 

Play Tent and Play Houses

Play houses are a great summer toy to have outside.

Keep the sun off when it gets too hot. Children can enjoy eating picnics inside and playing with their toys.

There is playhouse at my kids Grandma's house. It was given to her in a used condition but it still holds up really well after years of use (see the picture below) They enjoy playing in it and it's great for facilitating all kinds of imaginative play.

My 2 year old especially loves just going in and out the door, looking out from the window and opening and closing the shutters on the window (this keeps him occupied for ages).

Little Tykes Playhouse


This has lots of fab features perfect for 2 year olds.

The open design means that it's easy to keep an eye on your child.

There are some great features to encourage imaginative play

There's also a flagholder

Play tent

 



 

Play tents are cheaper than play houses but facilitate much of the same imaginative play.

They are also great for keeping the sun off young children in the hot weather.

Another plus with play houses is that they are portable.

You can use them outdoors in the summer and  indoors in the winter.

Little Tikes Lil' Wagon

 



 

Another favorite toy of my son's (again at Grandma's house - he's a bit spoiled there!) is a wagon

​Young children enjoy pushing  and pulling their toys round and round in a wagon

The wagon can be used indoors and outdoors.

The handle folds flat for storage.

The Green Toys gardening set featured is made out of recycled plastic so good for the environment too.

 

Little Tikes Pretend Mower

 



 

My son loves to push things around and I don't think he's the only one.

Kids from 2 to 4 love imitating Mom and Dad so will love this lawn mower with realistic sounds. It doesn't need batteries for the sounds which is a huge plus as the sounds are mechanical.

Pull the cord

And it has a removable gas can - Kids can open the tethered gas cap and pretend to fill up the lawn mower

 

Balance Bike

 



 

One of my 2 year olds favorite toys has been a balance bike. He uses his balance bike everyday. These are bikes without pedals but they give young children the opportunity to master the balance and co-ordination needed to ride a bigger bike. Little children can get on them and use them pretty much right away.

Micro Mini Deluxe Scooter

 



 

The micro mini deluxe scooter is the perfect choice for very young children.
The handlebar on the scooter adjust from from 17 to 25 inches so will accommodate kids of varying heights and will grow with your child..

The scooters are lightweight and this makes them easier for young children to control. It also makes them easier to pick up and carry when kids have had enough.

Basketball Set

 



 

If your child is like mine and loves balls, bouncing, throwing and catching they will love a basketball set. The best ones allow you to adjust the height. This is a great family toy as everybody can have a go.

The basketball set featured is a great little set as it will grow with your child. The height adjusts from 2 to 4 feet so suits kids from age 18 months to 5 years.

This set also  includes an oversized rim and junior size basketball

The base will need to be weighted with sand

 

​Little Tikes TotSports T-Ball Set

 



 

The Little Tikes totsports t-ball set is extremely popular outdoor toy with 2 to 4 year olds who love wacking balls off the tee.

​It's a great introduction to baseball and will also help improve basic batting skills along with motor skills and coordination. The balls and bats are plastic so kid friendly.

Just stomp on the pad at the bottom of the rocket and see how high you can shoot it into the air.

We have one of these and when we take it out to the park everybody wants to have a go (including adults!).

As well as jumping on the stomp pad the kids also enjoy having races to see who can reach and bring back the rocket first.

My 2 and 6 year old both enjoy having a go!

Sand Table

 



Sand table - If you can't get to the beach why not bring the beach to you with a sand table. Children can experience the sand while you sit back and relax.

My own son loved sand play from when he turned 2.

​He would push diggers through the sand, build sandcastles, tip it in and out of buckets, put it over his hands and lots more.

 

Trike

 



 

Tricycles are another great outdoor toys for 2 to 4 year olds. They can use them to master pedalling which is great for later on when they learn to ride a bike.

Look for a trike like the Red Flyer trike featured that has an adjustable seat so will grow with your child.

The solid steel frame means the trike is super durable and should last for years through siblings.

 

Water Sprinkler

 



 

It's amazing how young kids will be entertained by water for hours.

This sprinkler from Melissa and Doug will do just that. Set it up by attaching it to a garden hose and relax and watch while the kids have tons of fun.

It's fab for the hot weather. Kids can run outside in the water and cool down while enjoying themselves

Inflatable Pool

 



 

When the weather is really hot, there is nothing better than having an inflatable pool for kids where they can have fun and cool off.

Kids love water, they will be entertained for hours splashing and playing in a water filled pool.

Inflatable pools are also great for kids and adults to have fun in together if they are big enough.

Outdoor chalk

 



 

Outdoor chalk is fab. Young kids can draw on the ground and It can be washed away.

No mess indoors.

It's great for first drawings and practising writing letters.

As kids get older it's also good for playing games such as tic tac toe and hopscotch.

Slide

 



 

Sometimes the traditional toys are the best. And what child doesn't love a slide? My son will go up and down the slide for a long time and then he likes to push different toys down there and see how fast they go. A toy that will last for quite a while.

Kids will love going up the steps and whizzing down a slide.

In the summer, we splash water down ours and put it an inflatable pool for extra fun.

Outdoor rocker

 



 

Another fairly traditional toy that can be used both indoors and outdoors is a rocker like the one by little tikes featured.

2 to 4 year olds really love rocking away to their heart’s content.

They love watching them, chasing them, popping on them stomping on them!

A bubble machine take the hard work out of blowing lots of bubbles and provides many more than you can manually produce.

What's better on hot, sunny days then running around and having fun in the sprinklers.

Kids will love this sprinkle mat to keep cool.

Just attach a hose,easy to adjust to higher and lower water splash heights.
