Outdoor fun for the family

02 Sep 2020

With spring almost upon us, it's high time to start looking for ways to make the most of the great outdoors. Because is there really anything better than the smell of freshly cut grass and a neighbour's BBQ? We’ve prepared some family favourites to try when the sun is shining. ​

Scootin' around​
Every child (and adult's) favourite outdoor activity. Bikes and scooters to zip around the neighbourhood can be found at Big W, Target and Kmart, or even try your balance at a pogo stick from Big W.

Crafternoon in the sun​
Grab some chalk from Woolworths, some masking tape from Big W and create your own masterpieces on your driveway or outdoor pavement. Trust us, for such little equipment and thought, it's a hit with the little ones!

Curious kids​
For the little ones with a keen eye for insects and wildlife, why not try a bug catcher/creeper keeper from Kmart. Who knows, you may have a future Entomologist on your hands!

Budding green thumb
Why not enlist the help of your mini-me whilst doing the gardening next? Chances are, they want to play copy-cat and help out, even if that does mean shovelling dirt. Target has a range of gardening tools for the little ones, as well as Big W. Make it an afternoon of family fun! ​

Lawn games
Who can forget a good ol' game of Giant Jenga, Wooden Skittles/bowling or Kubb? You'll find a range of family favourites at Kmart and Big W, sure to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours.
