Water Play

Going to a swimming pool is one of the great joys of childhood.

But let’s face it. We don’t all live near a pool. And even if we did, the paraphernalia that goes along with it (towels, costumes, sunblock, floaties blah blah blah) can be a bit of a turn-off.

There’s a simple substitute for young children, and that is just to give them containers of water to play with. Unlike pools or even tubs, containers take up little space and you don’t have to keep such a close eye on safety.

I strip Aramis down to his diapers, set him on a mat with various pots and basins filled with water, and left to his own devices  he can play for a good half hour.

[Note: If you’ve read my earlier post on bean play, you can use the exact same set of equipment.]
