Outdoor Fun for Baby
Last week The PLAY Group shared their picks for making the most of outdoor fun for kids. (By the way, if you haven’t entered the giveaway for an ALEX Toys Digger yet, hop over and do that now!) But what about baby? I have to admit that I didn’t get my littlest outside much last Spring and Summer since he was so little. But this year, now that he’s 15 months old, he’s itching to get out and play with his big brother and sister. So I thought I’d share some essentials for ensuring more outdoor fun for baby (and toddler, too!).
5 Essentials for Outdoor Fun for Baby
Blowing bubbles is a classic activity for outdoor fun that even the littlest babies can enjoy.
2. Simple Balls
Babies and toddlers love rolling, throwing, and chasing balls of all shapes and sizes. We especially love sensory balls for both indoor and outdoor fun.
Whether putting baby right in a play pool or offering some water and containers for play, water always ensures more outdoor fun.
4. A Baby Swing
J.C.’s favorite thing outside right now is his baby swing. He just giggles and giggles. And to be honest, it’s a nice break for me from chasing him when he’s happily strapped into his swing!
5. Proper Skin Care
Don’t forget to protect baby’s skin with sunscreen even if it’s the sun’s not shining bright.
MelanSol Natural Sunscreen for Baby Can Help!
Playing outdoors won’t be fun at all if baby ends up with a sunburn. MelanSol sent us some samples of their 100% natural moisturizer and sunscreen for baby to try, and I was honestly really impressed. Since all of my kids are prone to bouts of eczema, I have to be very careful that the sunscreens that they use are all natural. And this herbal and pant based option certainly fits the bill.
