Now that the last spring frost has finally past, a majority of our time will soon be spent outdoors. Between sprucing up the garden beds and prepping the decks – it’s normal for us to be outside from sun up to sun down.

To prevent spending a good amount of time running in and out of the house, last year I began putting together a daily outdoor activity cart for CJ.

Summer Activity Cart for Kids
It takes just a few minutes in the morning to gather some curiosities, pack a few snacks, and corral everything onto the easy to move cart – before heading outdoors.

While CJ loves to explore, the outdoor activity cart provides some fun alternatives to keep him occupied when he decides to slow it down and take a break from running around.

A few ready to go snacks & drinks are also tucked in. Clean fresh fruit or pre-packaged snacks arranged to freely grab throughout the day are perfect amenities for busy little ones.

Wet-Nap Hand Wipes Outdoor Fun
Along with all of the fun outdoor activities come the messy moments. Wet-Nap hand wipes provide convenient antibacterial hand cleaning between all of the activities – without the need for soap and water. These small packettes I found at Walmart are my favorite as they are easy to take on the go and do not dry out.

From chalk and paint, to wet sticky bubbles – they are quick, easy and perfectly handy for those
on-the-go messes.

Fleece Freeze Pop Holders
And a day outdoors just isn’t complete without a cold icy treat – Along with some ice pop holders to keep those little hands warm and protected from drips.

Fleece Ice Pop Holders
I originally shared these incredibly easy to make freeze pop holders four years ago. They are so simple to put together and equally inexpensive.

Ice Pop Holders
This time around I made a no sew version using this glue . It worked like a charm!

  1. I really like this idea! I’ll have my grandkids for the day on Thursday and the weather is supposed to be quite nice soo I know they will want to play outside. I think I’ll put some sidewalk chalk, bubbles, board books, snacks, and sippy cups in a basket that can be carried out to the yard.
