When school lets out for Summer, moms are challenged by tots who often want to veg on the couch while watching cartoons and playing video games. But entertaining kids through the heat can be as easy as opening the back door.

Imaginative children can build a tepees, tents, or secret hideouts in the backyard while sportier youngsters may delight in croquet, bocce ball, T-ball, soccer, or a few holes of mini golf. Pool time is always a crowd-pleaser — especially when floats like the Motorized Bumper Boat are involved. If frolicking in the grass suits their fancy, a simple bouncy ball, sprinkler system, or a pretend lawnmower will keep them busy and excited about the great outdoors.
