Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has started off as a good one. Can you believe we are SO close to the holidays? I can't, this year went all to fast.
Yesterday I decided to take an idea that I found on Every Day Game Plan and put it into action with my girl.
First I got the largest bowl we have and put warm water in it with some dish soap. I made it bubbly and then gave Little Lou her favorite kitchen items to play in the water.
Here she is checking out the bubbles.
She wasn't really sure about the bubbles so I tried to show her they weren't so bad by playing in the bubbles first.
That didn't work out so well. Her favorite kitchen items ended up out of the bowl because...
she thought the bubbles were NOT COOL!
So I dumped out the bubbles and gave her some fresh water to work with. She went for it. At one point she was even trying to put her face in the bowl and rub water all over her face, silly girl. Let me show you how much she enjoyed this activity...
I don't know about most kids, but I really thought she would enjoy playing in the bubbles. Oh well, she loved this activity anyway without them. After playing in the water for a long time, I needed to get other things done but she didn't agree with being "all done", so I dumped out the water, dried the bowl and turned it over to let her bang on it and make noise instead. She was okay with that.
Now go get a bowl out momma, your little one(s) wants to play in the water!
What other ideas do you have for water activities?
