When the weather is nice, we love spending the majority of our day outside. We recently upgraded our playset and the kids are having an absolute blast! BUT not everyone has the room or budget for large outside play equipment so I thought I’d share some smaller and more budget friendly outside play options that we love!

1. Water Table
My kids LOVE their water table. And now there are SO MANY different designs available. This one is simple and budget friendly and this one features interactive elements. I love the fun colors on this one! Here’s the perfect water table for pirate lovers and even one that’s shaped like a cruise ship!
The sandbox is such a fun source of outside play! We actually have two. This one that is smaller and affordable. It’s perfect for just one kiddo. And we also have this one that both of our kids can use together at the same time.
We love playing with bubbles outside! I recently discovered the BEST bubble solution ever. I promise your kids won’t get frustrated blowing bubbles with this solution. We also use this set of bubble wands. And we have tons of Disney bubble wands from the parks too.
This bubble blower has great reviews!
4. Chalk & DIY Chalkboard
Sidewalk chalk is probably the cheapest outside play option around! We always have lots of chalk on-hand.
We don’t have any concrete in our backyard so instead we created our own backyard chalkboard using a leftover piece of thin plywood and chalkboard paint. We attached it right to our fence. Couldn’t have been easier!
Our home has a pool but I still like to use an inflatable pool with the kids when I don’t feel like swimming too. We have this one and love it. It’s plenty big for two kids! This smaller one looks great. And this one is trendy and fun!
We also have this inflatable water play center that the kids enjoy playing in!
Running through the sprinkler is perfect on a hot day. We love to set this one up in our yard. We also have this one that we like to put in the inflatable pool — it’s soft so we don’t have to worry about the kids hurting themselves on it!
We have this little slide and the kids love using it all over the yard. It’s lightweight and easy to move. We like to set it up to slide into the pool! The sprinkler keeps it wet and easy to slide down!
9. Picnic Table
We use our mini picnic table daily! It’s the perfect size for the kids. We eat, paint, color, etc. here! It’s very easy to hose off and clean since it’s plastic.
I hope these affordable outdoor play ideas are helpful!
