Super Soakers: These aren’t just squirt guns that shoot a drizzle of water, these really do get you super soaked! These started out as water guns with a large reservoir and hand pump action that made the stream come out faster and reach longer distances. Now, these battery powered guns come with separate water clips and you never have to worry about pumping or losing pressure.

NERF Guns/Bows And Arrows: The NERF gun collection has something for everyone. They have pistol sized guns that shoot foam darts, discs or balls, bazooka-sized guns and every size in between. You can also buy extra ammo and ammo holders in the form of vests, clips, slings bags and boxes. For more accuracy, targets are also sold separately. NERF also has a small line of archery sets, complete with NERF arrows.

NERF Toys For Younger Kids

NERF Sports: Younger children always want to join the “big kids” when playing sports. Fortunately, NERF footballs and basketballs are made of a softer material that is easier to catch and a lot less painful when receiving a throw to the face.

The weather is getting warmer and when that happens, it’s time for fun in the pool! Kids especially tend to naturally take to water during warmer days, but they don’t have to limit themselves to just plain old swimming when they get into the pool. If you get them one (or more than one) of the fun pool toys below, your kids will look forward to jumping into the pool even more!

Pool Floats

We’ve all seen those movie scenes with characters lying on a floating lounger while enjoying a margarita or a glass of champagne. Minus the drink (of course!), your kids can emulate this too especially on days where they just want to bask in the sun and laze around. There are also floats in the shapes of animals and cartoon characters if you want to make floats a more appealing toy to your younger kids.

Water Guns

Especially popular among little (and sometimes, not-so-little) boys, water guns are a great addition to any pool-day. Kids can have fun pretending the pool is a battlefield in a safe and pain-free manner with this excellent pool toy. However, be sure to get the types that can float – if the water gun constantly sinks to the bottom of the pool, it could endanger your child when they try to get it.

Your kids will definitely be very excited when they see this pool accessory next to your pool when they are getting ready to go for a swim!

There are a variety of card games you can choose from, so you can buy several packs if you are afraid your kids will get bored fast.

Warmer weather will be here before we know it and that means one thing, lots of outdoor water activities! If you are anything like me, one of the major stresses when hitting the water slides and pool is how to keep things dry. I have tried the tricks and even resorted to plastic baggies but nothing ever worked well.

When I heard about the Trunki PaddlePak, I knew I had to put this one to the test.

PaddlePak is a water-resistant backpack designed to stop wet stuff from getting in, or leaking out! They are made from lightweight and durable material and are big enough to fit everything your child may need for fun-filled days out and about, at school camp, parks, family vacation, sleepovers as well as trips to the beach or pool.

I will admit when I first opened the PaddlePak I was a little confused on how they worked. Silly mom forgot to read the directions. Now that we know, the kids can do it themselves.

Just unsnap the safety clip, unroll, and fill with your favorite toys! When you are ready to close it up, roll down at least 3 times and clip it!

The safety clip allows for a secure closure but allows your child to have easy access to their treasures.

Want to see it in action? Check out this video!

Don’t think the PaddlePak is only for your kids! Thankfully we had the PaddlePak with us during an unexpected rain shower at my son’s baseball game. I had my big girl camera with me and stashed it in the PaddlePak to stay nice and dry. And guess what? Totally worked!

The PaddlePak will be coming with us all summer long as we head to the beach and pool. We won’t be leaving home without them! Be sure to follow Trunki’s PaddlePak bags on Facebook and Twitter, and check out their website for the full selection of PaddlePak products.

Before prepared for warmer weather by shopping for a Trunki PaddlePak on Amazon!
