Stinking hot summer days often mean cranky-head kids, cooped up inside for hours while the sun beats down.
This play-time activity (you can see the previous posts here) is great any time of the day if you have a shaded area in your backyard, or in the late afternoon if not.
Water play is basic and probably needs no introduction, but it’s usually the simplest activities that give our kids the most mileage. (Balloons and a cardboard box, anyone?)
- various buckets
- cups, bowls, strainers etc
Let the kids have at it.
Simple is good.
