My kids love playing with water most kids do. I originally had this under-the-bed box from Ikea outside filled with water. But it always got gross. Dirty, slimy, and just plain icky. I finally decided to set it up in the house and see what the kids would do with it.
I added spoons, cups, a funnel and they happily played. Scooping and pouring and making soup.
After awhile I added some of the marble run tubes.
The first problem we ran into was the cooler I placed the bin on. It slid around too easily, and Ethan pushes on the side and I could just see him tipping the whole thing onto Hannah.
Ethan is scooping up ping pong balls.
As as a solution to my problem, I swapped the cooler for a small black table. This worked much better.
Ethan thought drinking the water was the best part. Eww
Just for fun I added pink carnation flowers to the water. Hannah especially thought this was great and made lots of flower soup.
