4 Things to Keep Your Kids Entertained in the Garden

If you are setting up an outdoor play area for your kids in the garden, you will want to choose high quality, safe playthings for them to use. Here are a few ideas for outdoor entertainment that should give them hours of enjoyment...

Outdoor Tyre Swing

Outdoor Tyre Swing

This well-constructed tyre swing is a great alternative to the homemade version that many homes have. It is much safer and professionally designed, so it should be able to handle rough play very well.

The filled tyre design makes it less of a safety hazard as well, and yet it’s great for endless hours of swinging fun. Kids should love the dynamic movement they can do with the tyre swing and the colourful rope. Parents will love that it comes assembled for easy setup.

Outdoor Sand Pit 1.2m x 1.2m

If you want your kids to have many hours of safe outdoor play, you might be interested in this outdoor sand pit.

One of its standout features is the overhead canopy, which blocks out direct sunlight. That makes for a much cooler and comfortable playtime for your kids. The sand pit is well constructed from durable materials, so your kids should get plenty of use out of it. It is also made with environmentally friendly and kid-safe materials.

We love this updated take on a playground favourite and how thoughtful the designers were in creating it.

kids raised bed planter

Raised Bed / Planter - 100% FSC Wood

Why not let your kids practice their gardening with you?

If you set this planter up in the garden, your kids will be able to try their own hand at gardening, and see what they can grow.

This gives them a way to spend time with you in the garden, hearing from you and developing important skills that they can use later on in life. This kid-size planter is designed to give them enough space to try growing a few smaller items, and yet not take up too much space in your garden. It’s the perfect height for smaller kids as well, so they won’t have to bend over or kneel down to use it.

If you want to encourage your kids to spend more time outside and help them learn how to grow things on their own, then this is a great way to do it.

It gives them a space of their own in the garden and lets them practice without causing damage to your plants.

Horse Tyre Swing

This heavy duty childrens outdoor swing is made in the shape of a horse, and made from old car tyres. The swing comes fully assembled with a decorative rope mane and a lovely red rope to enable you to hang the swing from a tree or exisiting climbing frame or swing frame.

The swing comes fully assembled but requires secure fitting to the structure it is being suspended from, weighing 11kg with a hanging rope length of 180 cm. Suitable for 5 years and up, this adventurous piece of play equipment will give many hours of enjoyment.

These are just a few of our top picks for making your garden a place where kids will love to spend time.
