For Christmas, we got the kids this table. It is both a picnic table and a water/sand table. I bought it thinking it would replace the countertop seating. But being so close to the baby's highchair made meal time a mele. So it has been sitting in the playroom, mostly unenjoyed.
Before naps, I promised the kids a "special surprise." (You know, because I'm insane) I had such high expectations for the water table. I don't like the kids playing outside, as everyone tends to end up in the sad sandbox- and I hate that sandbox. I came up with an idea on how to keep the water "contained." (with two 5 year olds and a 2 year old- BAHAHAHA) The table has a drain at the bottom, so I threw a bucket underneath before filling it with water- I felt so freaking smart.
Everyone had a pretty good time, though. And after all, it's only water.
In the end, there was tons of splashing, water everywhere, and wet t-shirts.
It was still pretty fun.
However, I don't think I'll be doing that again anytime soon. Maybe in the summer, in swimsuits, and if something is done about the sandbox.
LOVE this table! MUST COPY ASHLEY!!! But yes mine will be outside:) and yeah I understand we avoid our backyard we have issues... bahahaaReplyDelete
