Water, Water, Everywhere

We love to play in the water! Unfortunately, it has been too hot lately to stay outside for any length of time without gasping for air. I know that may sound completely weird but, in the Deep South, all things are possible. Today we had a small window of opportunity. Rain clouds were appearing a ways off and we felt the cool breeze of approaching rain LONG before the storm arrived. We seized the moment with gusto. I filled up the little play pool and then I remembered something I have been wanting to try for some time. We went inside and gathered up some supplies and ran back out! My little guy is not very tall so I had to make a mini-version so he would be able to enjoy his Water Wall.

I used a scrap piece of lattice and zip ties, along with other plastic items around the house that I could cut and poke holes in. (A large Cool Whip container, plastic water bottle and a disposable cup).

  1. Thanks so much for adding this to the outdoor play link up this week, I love the simplicity of your water wall - you show that anyone can do this. I am looking forward to exploring your blog today! Kierna
