Backyard Toys For Toddlers & Preschoolers

Next month a little dream of mine is coming true … a backyard fence! With an almost two and four year old, they don’t take kindly to being cooped up inside all day so spring and our fence is coming in the nick of time. As gardening supplies have been popping up in the stores, so have backyard toys for little ones. I’ve already snagged a sweet picnic bench for outdoor lunches and a fun water table. My last deal was a bubble lawnmower! I can’t wait to unveil our new backyard surprises and kick back in the sunshine with an iced coffee and good book. Because now, with a fence, I know there will be a safe boundary to my children’s adventures.
