Spark your kids’ imaginations and go on adventures at home! We’re so excited to share this fun “choose an adventure” activity jar idea with you today as part of a sponsored partnership with Radio Flyer.
It’s no secret that we love a good adventure! Family travel is definitely big part of our lives and we love seeing the world! While actually jetting off on adventures to great destinations isn’t always possible, going on fun adventures at home is!!! Whether it’s “summer boredom”, a rainy day, or even a snow day in winter, sometimes you just need some fun activities you can do at home! And that’s where your “choose an adventure” jar comes in handy! Just decorate a small tin or mason jar with a label and add sticks with imaginative adventure starter ideas on them. Here’s our list: 

You’ll want to write down adventures that you are okay with the kids doing at home (and some ideas they might need some help like making sure you have glow sticks or lights for stars, cardboard for a build, camping gear, etc). But, you can tailor your sticks for your kids and your materials at home! Here are some of our ideas:

Dinosaur Dig, Live in an Animal Den, Pirate’s Lair, Camping in the Living Room, Hunt for Monsters, Indoor Obstacle Course, Fairy Garden Forest, Backyard Explorer, Backyard Camping, Fight Dragons, Giant FORTress Build, Glow-in-the-Dark Bath, Stuffed Animal Zoo, Indoor City Build, Floor is Lava, Indoor Stargazing.

Fun, right?! These at-home adventures fit right in line with Radio Flyer‘s Travel Agency just for kids, created as part of their 100th anniversary celebration! Just check out this super adorable video!!!

Isn’t it cute?! Imagination adventures are SO great for kids! For 100 years, Radio Flyer has been helping to power play and inspire imagination in kids of all ages! Antonio Pasin created Radio Flyer in 1917 with a to “bring joy to every boy and every girl”. I’d day he succeeded since Radio Flyer is the most loved brand for wagons, tricycles, pre-school scooters and other ride-ons even 100 years later. Their products certainly are a favorite at our house! In fact, Baby Brother just got a special new “Adventure” Scooter for his birthday!We created it using the Radio Flyer Build-A-Scooter option, allowing us to customize something that’s perfect for him and our adventures! You can even customize it with their name! But, we opted for “adventure” instead. And it’s SO cute! The wheels even light-up! So, needless to say, Baby Brother was SO excited to try it out!It didn’t take long at all for the scooter to be used as part of our adventures! This one was “Backyard Explorer”. I mean, after all, flying around the backyard on your scooter, WITH A CAPE, and some binoculars is THE way to go exploring! 😉 

He had some fun postcards from far off destinations and was armed with some fun protection from Radio Flyer like Dragon Drool Defense (sunscreen spray), Rabid Monster Repellant (insect repellant), and Beast Barf Blaster (hand sanitizer)! SO fun! 

So, are you ready for your own imagination adventures at home? Grab a jar, get creative with some activities, and label some sticks! For an added bonus to help your adventures, Radio Flyer has offered up a GIVEAWAY!

  1. What a fun project to help keep the kids busy! I love all the Radio Flyer products and how they really are built to grow with your children. Currently, I’m eying the CLASSIC RED 12″ CRUISER for little sister’s first big girl bike!

  2. First thing that I saw is what I would love to get for my nephew. The Luke Skywalkers Landspeeder is on my Christmas check list. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I’m sorry I wrote that on the wrong thing! We are doing this craft this week to keep us going on adventures!!

  3. I love the 3-IN-1 EZ FOLD WAGON™ WITH CANOPY its very nice and the canopy keeps our young son nice and shaded

  4. Ohhh that’s a hard choice to pick just one favorite! I really want to play with everything on their site. Errr, I mean my kids would hehe. We actually recently moved halfway across the US and had to do some major downsizing including one very loved Radio Flyer Pink Tricycle so I would def choose that as my LO’s fave! I personally think the Flyer 500 looks like a ton of fun!

  5. I like the classic red wagon- reminds me of my youth! I have to admit, I didn’t realize how many products radio flyer has now!!

  6. We own the radio flyer scoot to pedal and one of the trikes and they are really awesome especially in terms of quality! These are strong toys that can be passed from family to family for a number of kids to enjoy over the years!! Mine have literally withstood toddler torture to be a part of many summer memories! I agree with you when you say that build a scooter is amazing with the customization option and the lighting up of wheels is bound to be a great hit with younger riders!! But my fav radio flyer has always been the TESLA! It’s so stylish and looks like so much fun!

  7. I like the scooters. Its really neat how you can customize them now. I noticed each product was now customizable and my kids would love that.

  8. I Really liked the Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder…very cool! But not in my budget right now. Also liked the scooters, they seem very well made. Thanks!
