15 incredible toys that make kids want to explore the outdoors


Sidewalk chalk

Nothing sparks creativity in most kids more than drawing. Allowing them to draw all over the sidewalk takes that up a notch. Of course hopscotch provides endless entertainment, but sidewalk chalk can also allow your children to create intricate worlds and explore their own imaginations. Try sectioning off a driveway with chalk and playing four square, or go out in your rain boots and make colored chalk puddles.
