Children have a thirst for knowledge and a natural curiosity for how the world works. How can parents nurture and encourage that growth and learning? By offering lots of time for good old-fashioned play! Play is vital to healthy brain development at this age, and playing with others offers the most practical way for kids to learn valuable life lessons. Active play indoors and outdoors, imaginative pretend play, and activities and games that challenge minds and bodies allow kids ages 6-8 to use creativity and imagination while developing physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Now more than ever before, it is so important to engage in fun physical activities together as a family; invite friends over to the backyard for an afternoon of active outdoor play; or turn the playroom into a game room! Keep them moving and playing outside with our assortment of active play for the backyard. Enjoy friendly competition with a game or activity that everyone can participate in - Portable Cornhole, Pick-Up-And-Go Table Tennis, or 3-in-1 Baseball Trainer. Expand balancing skills with a Slackline Training Line, zip through the air on a Zip Line, or challenge overall physical skills with the NinjaLine Obstacle Course. Have a rocking good time bouncing around on the 2-in-1 Adjustable Hammock or WonderWave. When it's hot outside, create your own backyard water park with the Ultimate Dual Water Slide or Giant Inflatable Rainbow Arch Sprinkler. When the temperature drops, bundle up and enjoy an afternoon of fun with a Zipfy Mini-Luge Sled or Fold and Stow Snow Scooter. Does excess energy have them climbing up the walls? Channel that exuberance into climbing and playing on the Woven Rope Tunnel Bridge or Ninja Cargo Net. Inflate and elevate the fun with our customer-favorite Inflatable Buddy Bumper Balls or Giant Inflatable Colorful Rolling Wheel. Ready to ride? Get around on the YBike Explorer Pedal Go Kart or Foldable Steam Scooter. Swing through the day on one of our customer-favorite, most-loved swings, such as the popular SkyCurve Swing or Hanging Sky Tent Swing. Looking for the perfect game or activity to set up in your family room or basement? Curling Zone and Shuffleboard Shuffle Zone are unique games of strategy and coordination that challenge all ages. Get the whole family to join in a game of Golf Pool or Tabletop Pool. Kids love to build and construct. Give them everything they need to build an indoor fort or playspace with our popular Fantasy Fort Building Sets (choose Mighty, Cabin, Castle, Brick-so many choices!) Get crafty with a ChalkScapes Stencil Kit, Holiday Table Decorating Kits, or Unicorn Knot-a-Pillow Kit. Head to the kitchen (with an adult) to bake up a tasty creation with a Cookie Kit, Pie-Making Kit, or Candy-Making Kit. Get creative with a Paint-Your-Own Rock Kit, or Paint-Your-Own Birdhouse or Butterfly House. Seven- and eight-year olds still love to dream and engage in imaginative play. Watch them flit around the yard in Colorful Butterfly Wings, Unicorn or Dragon Wings, or Realistic Owl Wings. Set up a tea party with a Woodland-, Fantasy-, or Ladybug-themed Tin Tea Set, and they will invite their favorite plush friends (Rainbow Unicorn Play Set, Dragon Play Set, or Razzle or Dazzle the Plush Unicorn). Cook up a tasty treat with the help of a Mud Kitchen and a set of pots and pans. Create fantastical adventures with Fairy Dolls inside their Woodland Fairy Home. Combine fun AND learning with educational toys and activities. Go green with the Grow With Me Root Viewer or Triple Garden Planter. Observe natural habitats with the Bat House or Bee House, complete with Field Guide Cards. Music aficionados will love our Student Guitar and Shark Ukulele. Provide the perfect place to rest in comfort with one of our popular HugglePod or HangOut hanging chairs.
