It’s the dog days of summer around here and we seem to be spending every moment outdoors in the water. Backyard water games have quickly become our favorite afternoon and evening activities, and any chance we get to be outside the boys take it!

Below are four fun and perfect outdoor toys that we’re currently loving this summer!


Modern Burlap Blog - 4 Outdoor Toys Perfect for Summer



  1. Alright, this huge water ball sprinkler is genius. It’s a modern and cute update on the classic “run-through-the-sprinkler” game that we all loved so much. And the best part? It’s inflatable! So pick it up and take it with you on vacation or to the cabin or to the grandparents house. It’s seriously too much fun!
  2. This crazy pool from Target is a definite backyard favorite. We love that it’s suitable for both our three year old and our one year old. The slide is sturdy and fun for both boys and that dinosaur mouth makes us laugh every single time.
  3. This vertical take on bean bags is a fun early morning or late evening game (when it’s not too hot out!). It’s cute, easy to stand up and move around, and we like to tell ourselves it’s helping with the boys hand eye coordination!
  4. Pottery Barn has taken the standard beach ball to an entirely different level with these inflatable summer beach balls! They’re adorable and keep the boys entertained very well! And bonus: they’re currently on sale!
