Yes! 24/7!

For that - the more tiring garden toys, the better. Jumping rope, soccer ball to run after, big circles to throw and jump in, hoolahop!

Yes. Just don't show her the pic of the goatbike I posted. She might want it.

Re: Garden games

Speedminton. There's an option of light up shuttlecocks. Awesome.

Is 6 too young for KUBB? That's pretty cool.

I would have loved any of those! But we had a bucket full of water, fruit trees to demolish and ton of books. Slingshots are cool, too, and bubbles to blow. Hand and finger paints! Especially if pool is conveniently there. Silly playdough coz you can take it with you to the pool-side.

Re: Garden games

I wanted to post a special note of thanks for Meloncollie, who posted me a complete book of COOP Trophy stickers (plus some additional stickers and a beautiful postcard!)


I was able to, today, get a badmington set, a inflatable pool ring, a picnic blanket and some outdoors game with wooden pieces, that I'm not familiar with, all free of charge!



Thanks Meloncollie, you made my day!

Looks like we will have to take two cars!!!

I had to find that one! (I'm not following that thread too closely!)


I think that might give her nightmares! I would be game though!

Check online for the various handicaps you can use to even it out between grownups and kids - throwing with your wrong hand for example, or having to close your eyes before you throw. There are also drinking game versions for when the kids are in bed...

Re: Garden games

So, just a quick update from scorching Tuscany! (Seems I'm missing all the fun weather in Switzerland!)


- Inflatable ring for the pool an absolute winner (I even have to take it home with me!)
- A smaller, softer vollyball for the pool, for playing catch, also a winner
- Skipping rope and hoolahoop, also great
- Super soaker water pistols. I think that I enjoyed it more!
- Badmington set. Perhaps not for a 6 year old, but Mrs GB and I enjoyed it
- Bocci ball. I didn't realise that this was like French Boules, but with plastic, water filled balls. Great fun that anyone can play
- Kubb. Unfortunately I took one look at the instructions and decided that I didn't (want to) understand it!


One other item which was great was a bluetooth speaker. Was really fantastic to have music in the garden. I bought a Sonos Roam, which has performed really well!


Thanks again everyone for your great contributions!
