2.  Slip and Slide: You can’t beat a classic slip and slide! They are available for purchase at most local retailers, but try this DIY version to make you slip and slide custom! Pair your slip and slide with a few of the Melissa and Doug toys for the ultimate outdoor experience.

3. Water balloon bean bag: This Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch toy is for bean bags, but why not fill a few water balloons and give those a try for a little splash of fun!

4. A ball boost to the standard kiddie pool: Adding toys like pit balls or a slide to a standard kiddie pool takes it to the next level. Get creative but play it safe! No battery operated or water damaging toys should be used.

5. Swimming Pool Scrabble: has developed a great idea for a pool game that helps keep your kids brain in shape on summer vacation. Using colorful sponges with hand written letters – toss them into a pool and get busy spelling!
