As we are right smack in the middle of Olympics fever we thought we would do another blog on bringing the Olympic Games into the garden this summer. Wicken Toys stocks many sports and games & outdoor toys for children that could help them qualify them for their own gold medals!
The trick here is to set-up your own Olympic Stadium in the back garden. The Olympics is a perfect excuse to get your children actively involved and excited about sports, so now is the time to capitalise on all the sports hoopla!
You want a variety of games set-up so both your children and their friends can have a full range of sports and games to engage with.
First up, it’s the TP Rebounder.
This is for one or two players. It’s designed to help children practise their catching and target skills. The angle of the frame can be altered to make it easier or harder, so it is perfect for different ages and abilities. It’s a good first game to start off with encouraging healthy competition.
Next up on the Garden Games list is the aptly named TP Garden Games Set which is ideal for jumping, short tennis, badminton or children’s volleyball. Racquets and shuttlecocks are included. This is a perfect set to stand-in for multiple games.
The TP Netball Set is another Garden Games event that will have the kids competing and enjoying themselves. This netball set has a fully adjustable ring. The net height goes from just above the base and up to 10 feet. It’s ideal to encourage even the very youngest of players. This is a team sport that’s worthy of entry into the garden events.
Take to the Table Tennis on the green and pit competitors in one-on-one matches or get them to play doubles. It’s a lighter way to get them into participating but requires a steady hand and a quick eye! Get the Kettler Tennis Table Bats and the Kettler Champ 3.0 Outdoor Table to have the perfect Olympian package in your garden!
There is nothing to stop you from setting up your own Olympic events for your children in the back garden and get them to compete in their own, less intense version. These are just a few suggestions for how to engage your children and their friends in one of the biggest sporting events in the world! Don’t forget to make up those bronze, silver and gold medals/stars to make it a real Olympic-style event.
