Outdoor toys for girls

In the modern world that we live in, it is an assumption that there are no disparities when it comes to boys and girls, especially in their abilities to tackle the same issues in life. However, even with this sense of equality, girls prefer to be involved in some things that would not be of interest to boys at all. It is on this same breath that there are outdoor toys that girls would prefer to play with such as play houses, picnic tables, swings as well as slides.

When it comes to playing house, the girls will be able to enjoy it more because of the nurturing nature that they have. They would like to maintain the house both, inside as well as outdoors, while discovering the various parts of the playhouses that they can keep tidy. These types of outdoor toys allow the girls to experience and learn on how to be girls, while they enjoy the outdoors as well.

Many small girls like to play home- maker and this is easily achievable on the outdoor picnic tables. They are able to organize tea parties that they can invite their friends to attend, while providing other activities such as finger painting as well as jigsaw puzzles. These outdoor tables can be made from various materials that are usually easy for the girls to clean after their parties and thus cultivating a sense of responsibility in their future lives.

Other outdoor toys that girls can enjoy include slides as well as swings, especially those made with a design that is attractive to girls such as a fairy tale palace. The girls are able to maneuver through the structure and end up at the slide that they will use to get to the bottom of the structure and climb up again in turns. Most girls find it so much fun to race against their friends to see who will be able to take the most turns up and down the slide.

On the other hand, the swings are also great Outdoor Toys for girls, when they do not have to do physically intensive activities. It is a great way to relax after playing the whole day and the girls learn social skills as well as they take turns on the swings. Lastly, whichever outdoor toys the girls use, the objective is for them is to enjoy themselves as much as possible.

Good Outdoor Toys for Young Teens

It may be easy to buy a child a toy when he is younger but as he grows to 10, the choices of good toys seem to be limited. It is even more difficult when it is an outdoor toy as you would not want your child to be cooped up in the home most of the time, especially when the weather is warm and lovely outside.

Chances of children playing the computer or watching TV increase when they are inside the house rather than outside. Although some parents do not like their children to be rough or dirtied with outside play, it is much healthier for a child to be playing outside in the garden or backyard than sitting in front of the computer in the house.

Outdoor toys can be an ideal boost to the child’s health as many outdoor toys require active movement by the child. This enhances the child’s motor coordination and mental alertness during the game.

Characteristics of children between 10 and 12

Children between 10 and 12 years old are considered young teens. They are often left out in many aspects as they are neither here nor there. They are too young to be classified as teens or youth and they look really little besides the latter. But they are too old and big to join the younger children bracket; that is below 10. Hence, these young teens tend to find solace with their peers; this can lead to great peer pressure and influence, whether good or bad.

But parents need to be very careful in dealing with their young teens by monitoring the company they keep and the toys they get involved in. Parents can help by selecting the right kind of outdoor toys for their young teens so that they can invite their peers over for a good and fun game together.

Bad influences

TV shows are not beneficial to young teens as cartoons are too childish for them at this phase; they are too young for many adult movies which bring across a lot of undesired influences like violence, sex and plotting. Video games are also not healthy as they tend to crowd out the child’s creative thinking with a strong bias on violence. Electronic games are indoor games which can make your child a loner as he gets engrossed with these hand-held gaming systems. These games also limit the use of other faculties as only the thumbs are primarily used; hence, your child may end up with some joint or wrist medical condition.

Good Outdoor Toys

Boys and girls between 10 and 12 years old are always active; they would love Children's Outdoor Toys that allow them to move about. You can engage them in the latest skateboard, roller skates or electric scooters.
