Since the summer months are just around the corner, chances are your children will be spending a lot more time in the back yard. If this the case in your family, consider buying your toddler(s) toys that have been specifically designed to be played with outdoors. For example, a sand and water play table allows your young-uns to release their imaginations in both water and sand. Kind of like playing at the beach but without having to travel.
