The Northeast may be buried in snow and it may be cold and rainy in Portland, but I am stubbornly clinging to the fantasy that sunny, warm weather is right around the corner.
Have you ever played with a stomp rocket? Has your kid? It's my favorite birthday present choice for a 3- to 7 year-old with a warm weather birthday. Gets everyone outside, active, and laughing — including much older kids and even adults. EVERYONE wants a go at a stomp rocket.
This hack from Whitney Moss of Rookie Moms and 510 Families puts a tissue box to work storing the rockets. So smart! Schlepping the original box around is a hassle, and this is so much easier for kids to handle.
When it's time to put everything away in the garage, just rubber band or bungee the compressor and box of rockets together and you're ready for the next day at the park.
What's your favorite outdoor toy that appeals to a wide range of kids?
