I posted this on my Fireflies and Jellybeans blog , (that is why the water marks on on all the pics) But I thought it would work here too!
I am taking a break from the Love Budget this week because we are having fun playing outside! :)
It is getting HOT here! And that means more time outside playing with water! I would LOVE to have a water table but I do not want to spend the $30-$60 to get one... so I made my own for FREE! I had ALL of this stuff at my house and I bet you do too!
Here is what you will need to make a little water table!
One big storage tote ( This is a sweater tote 41 gallon... but use you what you have!)
Cookie sheet to act as a tray
Various water toys/cups:
foam fish stickers
I looked around my kitchen and bathroom for about 5 minutes and found lots of fun things
I placed my big storage tote on two outdoor foot stools (little tables or chairs would work too. Or you could just leave it on the ground!) I filled it up with water and put all the toys in to play. All done! It is all ready to play with!
You can scoop out some fish with the net (mini-strainer)
Or pour water out of the watering can
Or watch your little one have hours of fun with the water!
It was a great summer activity. My son had SOOOOO MUCH fun! He was soaking wet too, so next time I think I will put him in his swim suit!
The other great thing about this water table is that it is easy to store! Just put all of your stuff back and store some stuff in your tote and you are set!
