It’s Summer!! Woot! Woot!
On the last day of school (for my 4th grader… my PreK-er got out almost a week earlier), I had a WELCOME TO SUMMER surprise waiting!
Our outside toys had become more than a little worse for wear and I recently tossed A LOT of them. 😮 Making room for new summer toys!
A lot of the items I bought for $1 (LOVE me some Dollar Tree!), but there were a few things I paid a little more for… the kiddie pool, sand (it is hard to see, but there is play sand in the kiddie pool – a DIY that’s much cheaper than the turtle sandbox, but there’s no lid), bubble blower, sidewalk chalk, and the big snake pool float (a consignment sale find, I think it was $4).
A few of the items were around $3: badmitton set (Walmart), pirate ship beach playset (Dollar General), and the super large Frisbee-like toy (Walmart). The Summer Lovin’ sign was $4 from Five and Under, but that was for me. 😉
My favorite Dollar Tree item is the large green basket in the middle of the kiddie pool. It is LARGE and has a handle. Perfect for beach toys!
The Nerf bullets are from Wish. I don’t remember exactly how much they were, but I got a large amount for really cheap. I also bought foam “cans” to shoot from them, too ($1 for 6).
I also bought a few balls, but they wouldn’t fit in the kiddie pool, so I threw them in the trampoline.
That’s somewhat of a summary of what I purchased for our surprise, but you can include any fun, summer toys. I collected items over a period of time, so I didn’t feel the pinch buying it all at once. 😉
Eyeing the playhouse in the far background of the trampoline pic, I’m thinking it is due for an overhaul. I’ll let yall know if I get brave enough to tackle it!
My boys are very excited about the beginning of Summer Break and are enjoying the new toys:
