Can't go to the beach? No problem. Create your own little 'beach' at home with kinetic sand. It feels like real sand, but when force is applied, it sticks together allowing you to create different shapes. It's also easy to clean unlike actual sand.

An inflatable pool is always a good idea and a great way to wear out all their energy. This pool is thick and has a reasonable height, allowing you to adjust the water depth depending on your child's age. Throw in some colourful balls or cups for extra entertainment!

If your child is slightly old enough to operate a remote control, this stunt car is loads of fun! The stunt tyres allow it to twist in different ways kinda like those in Transformers. Plus, it's rechargeable too.

For slightly older kids (or even adults), this interactive penguin game is similar to Jenga but instead of keeping blocks from falling, you need to keep the penguin from tumbling.

The game comes in multiple sizes.

You can get it here or here.
