What makes these gifts better for outdoor play, really nothing more than good weather. All of these toys are better played outside than inside, so apply all these to some of the warmer winter states, like Hawaii and Arizona as well. Enjoy the top Christmas Gifts for Kids that Encourage Outdoor Play.
1. Giant Connect 4 Game
I’m Bringing Blogging Back suggests sending the kids outside for a giant game of Connect 4. A 2-foot tall game board and large pieces are great for even the young kids because they’re not a choking hazard. You can find it here on Amazon.
2. Kan Jam
3. Sidewalk Chalk
This is one of those perfect for any time of the year gifts. As the blogger Oh Joy points out, there’s no kid (big or little) that doesn’t like sidewalk chalk. Your kids will love it. Crayola has an entire 64 color pack on Amazon. You can find it here on Amazon.
4. Kick Scooter
Another great suggestion from Woman’s Day, the kick scooter. There’s a number of options on Amazon, but the Razor A Kick Scooter is considered the best value option. You can find it here on Amazon.

5. Sky Ripperz
After you open presents on Christmas morning, take the kids to the park to play with their Sky Ripperz. Blogger Jen Raly says no batteries required, just pull and let go. You can find them here on Amazon.
6. Stomp Rocket
7. Hockey Set
Another awesome suggestion from Jen Raly, hockey set by Franklin. Yes, Californians love hockey, they have three professional NHL teams. The best part of the set is that the goals collapse for easier storage. You can find it here on Amazon.
8. Wall Climbing RC Car
9. Critter Barn Habitat Kit with Light
Send the kids outside to find some really cool things to look at, just make sure whatever they find stays outside! Thrifty Frugal Mom suggests the one with the light. We do too. You can find it here on Amazon.
10. Nerf N-Strike Mega Series RotoFury Blaster
11. Air Wars Battle Drones
This is another one of those toys that’s just as fun for adults as it is for kids. Best Products suggests the Air Wars Battle Drones. You can buy them in sets of two on Amazon, or as singles. Buy as many as you need for a good time.
What’s Up Fagans call this one of the best outdoor gifts for kids, but honestly it’s a lot easier to be outdoors in the winter in California. That’s why a playhouse may be the perfect gift for a kid that loves to play make-believe. You can find it here on Amazon.
