Stay cool when the sun shines in one of our pools or paddling pools. The whole family can enjoy splashing around, from water babies to grown-ups. Choose a handy inflatable pool that's easy to put up, or go for a sturdy framed design for more regular use. Models with added extras like slides or a built-in ball pit bump up the fun for more adventurous kids, while canopied versions provide shade. Popping them into swimwear that keeps delicate skin covered is ideal for avoiding sunburn.
When they're out of the water and need to stay warm, let little ones whizz round the garden on their babies' trike. These build up muscles and confidence and give toddlers a chance to explore. Steering handles at the back mean you can keep them on the straight and narrow.
For kids with energy to burn, try active children's games like rounders or hopscotch. Or earn the award for parent of the year by installing a bouncy castle. Add a child slide and a climbing frame and you've suddenly got an adventure playground, without even leaving the garden.
