Just before we sign off for the day and skip out into the garden, we’ve put together (in no particular order) some tips for fun this weekend! 

10) This is the perfect solution for those messy ice cream situations. You can easily squeeze a Tangle Twister into JoJo Maman Bebe’s Babysafe Feeder, allowing your littlest ones a chance to enjoy ice cream, without ending up a wet and sticky mess! 

9) The Early Learning Centre has a three-for-two on sports and gardening toys this weekend. We like the Sand and Water Table for only £36.00, in pink or red. 

8) As kids, my parents always took us to Toys R Us for all our summer paddling pools and inflatables… Despite the naff new theme tune, Toys R Us do not disappoint! They have a range of affordable paddling pools for the babas, (we’d advise filling up by bucket if you’re in a hose pipe ban, and always watering the plants with the water afterwards!) but I had to blog about the Little Tikes Slam and Curve Water Slide Bouncer. Although not the cheapest of the range, at £239.99, it definitely does the business! 

7) Swingball – another of my favourite family garden games. You can get an all ages Swingball on Amazon next day delivery for around £40. I bought one last summer, and they’re actually pretty sturdy, and still just as much fun when you’re an adult, if not more! For the little babas, a Mookie Swingball First Swingball is only £14.99. 

6) Sun hats – Go Out Doors have a fun selection of sun hats for kids. Always useful, if you can get your baba to keep it on their head! 

5) The Kids’ Window have a great selection of kids’ sun protection suits, take advantage of their May sale. 

4) A hot weekend at the beach wouldn’t be complete with a pair of jelly shoes. These shoes by Panache Kids are bubble gum scented, guaranteed to impress your little one! 

3) Here’s a family favourite, by All Out Door, and one for the older kids and adults to enjoy outside, a giant Connect 4! 

2) Something for all the family – a garden picnic. Nigel’s Eco-Friendly BBQ Kit is just the ticket at only £27! A perfect addition to a day full of outdoor fun and games. 

1) Supergloop… As we’ve already mentioned today, sun cream is SO important in this weather. Supergloop can be found in most stores these days, and the industrial size dispensers are perfect for all the family. Generous amounts to be applied this weekend. Have a good one!
