I absolutely love when school’s out for the summer and I can actually see my kiddos! It’s a lot of fun having them around the house, but it can also be exhausting. Sometimes I need to get some mom stuff done and the kiddos have to entertain themselves for a little bit.
And that’s exactly why I’ve spent so much time cultivating this list of the very best summer toys your kid can play by himself.

Note: You have to be the judge of what your kid can and can’t handle by himself. These are just recommendations below.

Send the kiddos out on the sidewalk or in the driveway with a scooter, and they’ll leave you alone for as long as you need! Scooters are fun with friends or by yourself – learning new skills and exercising out in the sun.

This summer, give yourself a well-deserved break and send your kiddo to play with one of these fun summer toys your kid can play by himself!
