Here in Texas, it's starting to show signs of soon being warm enough to splash around in the water outdoors. I remember that when I was little, I looked forward to that season with sooo much anticipation. My mother's rule was that we could play in the sprinklers when the temperature reached 75 degrees, and when it reached 80 we could play in the inflatable pool. You can be sure that we watched the thermometer with diligence so as to be sure not to miss an opportunity (we lived in Michigan, after all, and we had to make the most of every little scrap of summer)
To help melt the winter blues away a bit, CSN will be giving me an opportunity to review an outdoor water toy. (CSN is a family of online stores that is currently promoting, among other things, a diverse line of kids bedding).
The toy I will be reviewing is a Little Tikes Island Adventure Water Table. It looks like a lot of fun- the sort of thing that might really entice little ones to want to play outdoors. Can't wait to try it out and tell you what I think.
I thought too, that on the day that I write the review for the water table, that it would be fun for all of us to share some of our best outdoor water activities/games/toys. I would love to hear your ideas so we can be ready with an arsenal of fun for when the hot weather hits!
Here is a picture of my cousin and I years ago using plastic bags to fling water at each other (we had run out of water balloons at my house and had to improvise!)
