Preschool is Out. Next Up, Outdoor Water Play

Preschool is Out. Next Up, Outdoor Water Play

My best summer parenting tip? 

Add WATER. 

Literally. Add water to anything you have in your playroom and it will become a brand new toy, buy you some time to check Instagram, and sip your HOT coffee before it gets cold. Guaranteed.  

*Disclaimer, children can drown in water. This post is about adding a little bit of water, and staying close to supervise. Use your best discretion I joke above, but I stay close. Tonight, my youngest preschooler stuck his head in the bucket. You need to stay close when playing with water. 

Here is a sneak peek into what we bring outside with us in a pinch. All links are Amazon Affiliate links. 

Our Buckets:

So far, this has been our best summer purchase.

We have yet to add sand, however use everything included almost every day. Sometimes it is with water, and others a race up and down the driveway. Preschoolers and toddlers love to pull and push, load and dump. Which is why this is the bomb.

More Amazon Affiliate Links for toys we take outside to add to water play. YES! Tupperware is one of our favorite water play items! 

 

You know the fun is over when the water gets dumped.

My Advice:

If this happens, wrap it up and tell them you will come back again another day.

Because kids.

If they dump, and you continue to refill, they will continue to dump. If this happens, Instagram feed will not be checked, and you will have cold coffee. Ain't nobody got time for that.
