Planning an Outdoor Playdate with Kmart #PlaydatePlace

I was recently invited to use Kmart Playdate Place to plan a play date at my home. Since we practically live outside and were having out play date during the 4th of July weekend, I KNEW it would be a outdoor play date. So I headed to Kmart.com to begin shopping for the perfect outdoor toys for the kids to play with.
I invited my friends from high school who have kids ranging from 2-12 years old so I tried to get a variety of toys that would entertain such a large age range. It wasn’t easy choosing from over 125 toys in the ‘outdoor’ section alone. But I eventually narrowed it down to the Razor eSpark Electric Scooter for the older kids to check out. The adorable Little Tikes Get Out ‘N’ Grill BACKYARD BARBECUE for the little ones along with the Fisher-Price Grow With Me 3 in 1 Skateboard. And then Super Soakers, Bubbles and Frisbee for all them to enjoy.
I was thrilled with how quickly I received all the items, compared to the projected ship dates. Then the day before the event we put together all out great buys. The scooters and grill required some minor assembly and the electric scooter had to be charged up. The morning of the party we loaded up the cooler with tons of drinks because it was a hot and humid day. But thankfully our yard provides lots of shade. The kids had tons of fun and spent most of the time together soaking each other with the water guns while the parents were able to relax in the shade and chat. Between the great toys from Kmart and a light lunch the kids were happy for hours playing. While the electric scooter was absolutely a hit with the older kids, they also thoroughly enjoyed the simpler toys such as the water guns, frisbee and bubbles. With great prices everyday and additional savings available to those who signed up with Kmart Playdate Place, you can stock up on great toys without ever leaving your house. A well planned play date will allow the kids to have a great time while parents have a chance to enjoy each others company as well.
