Spring is just around the corner and for us that means lots of playing outside in the garden and on the patio. We love having toys that are perfect for both in and outdoors and games that are portable to enjoy outside. We have gathered a few ideas that are perfect to enjoy this Spring. 

6 in 1 solar recycler

6 In 1 Solar Recycler
Teaching the children to recycle is so important but it can also be lots of fun too. The 6 in 1 Solar Recycler can transform old items into something fun and new. 

The kits contains everything you need to get started including a solar panel, motor and instructions. All you need to do is add the recycled item. Turn an old bottle in to a drummer robot, a yacht or a flying bird. If you have an old can you can turn it in to a walking robot or a street roller. 

The perfect kit to provide lots of play in an eco friendly way.

Huckleberry Make Your Own Motor Boat
Children love using their imagination especially outdoors. A simple stone, a stick or piece of wood can turn in to whatever the child's imagination wants. This kit has everything a child needs to turn a piece of wood, cardboard or bottle in to their very own motor boat. 

All you need to do is build your boat and attach the motor and place it in the water. Press the button and watch as it sets sail across the water. 

Play Foam

Learning Resources Play Foam
Play Foam is perfect for both inside and out and can provide hours of fun. Each Play Foam ball can be squashed, squeezed. shaped and sculptured to create anything your imagination wants. Each squeeze of Play Foam is not only fun but can help to develop fine motor and manipulative skills, 

The texture of the Play Foam is also perfect for sensory play. The best thing about the Play Foam is it will not stick to anything. If playing indoors you can be sure it won't stick to your carpet and outside it can be placed in a tuff tray and will never dry out.

Spring is the perfect season for chocolate with Easter just around the corner. The Chocolate Lolly Maker has everything you need to get started an make some delicious chocolate lollies for yourself or as a treat for a friend. 

All you need to do is melt some delicious chocolate (not included), pour into a mould of your choice, adding a lolly stick. You can even add a message too. 

You can make your chocolate lolly even more special by wrapping it in a gift bag. 

pop up net

Huckleberry Pop Up Net
We find lots of bugs and creatures in Spring and it is lovely to go on a bug hunt and see what you can find. If you are feeling a little adventurous and brave you may like to catch the bugs so you can study them and observe them. The Huckleberry Pop Up Net is ideal for those who enjoy being outdoors and looking for bugs. 

All you need to do is pop the net open so it is 10" wide, catch your bugs and creatures, observe them, then release them back to the wilderness. 

Kanoodle head to head

Kanoodle Head To Head
Go head to head with a friend in this colourful and fun game. Each player has to compete to be the first player to finish the puzzle. It takes a lot of thinking to correctly place the 2D magnetic shapes in the correct order. If you finish first all you need to do is press the button and watch the other players pieces fly in to the air. 

80 different challenges to complete, Kanoodle is a perfect size to take out and about with you too.

Huckleberry Waterproof Sketch Book
We can never rely on the great British weather so the Huckleberry Waterproof Sketchbook is a great way to be able to sketch, draw, write and colour outdoors no matter what the weather. 

Each of the 80 pages is 140gsm waterproof stone paper and is the ideal size to fit in your pocket on the go. 

Hoppy Floppy Happy Hunt

Hoppy Floppy's Happy Hunt
Perfectly themed for Spring, Hoppy Floppy's Happy Hunt is a fun filled game were each player must use the tweezers to pick up the coloured carrots from the box and place them in their basket. The first player to have four different coloured carrots in their basket is the winner. 

The use of tweezers in the game can really help develop fine motor skills, hand eye co-ordination and also matching colours. 

Spring is one of my favourite seasons as we start to enjoy warmer days and lighter evenings giving us the perfect chance to enjoy lots of different activities both inside and out.
