A Homemade Paddling Pool!!

Its been a totally rubbish week weather wise and as a result the boys and I haven’t been out and about as much as I would have liked or been able to. 
As Daddy had at last cleared our backyard out last weekend, and it was dry last Monday afternoon, I decided to let the boys play with some water. I actually only intended for them to play with the water with some containers to pour it in and out of it, while they sat or stood on the rug. 
However, my two had other ideas!! Deciding that the plastic tub I had filled up was a paddling pool, within a few seconds Jenson climbed in and sat down in it! Then while I got him out to put his swimming shorts on, Burton stripped off and got in!! Unbelievable!!
Although very funny, I also love the fact that both boys are playing together so nicely and Burton was letting Jenson build the tower and encouraging him to do so too. Great teamwork boys!
Just goes to show that 
water + plastic tub + the outdoors = lots of fun!!
and very cheap entertainment!!

  2. This just proves we spend way too much time and money on expensive toys. This is best plus their imaginations starts to work teaching them lifesklills. Fab pictures and post xxx

  3. Heheh. I have a little man of my own who is very much into water. Any expanse of water whatsoever, be it puddle, washing up bowl, bucket, swimming pool, shower tray: they are all a “bath” and he’s in them before you’ve had time to think. I think water just makes children happy! Lovely pictures. X

  4. I couldn’t agree more! Give them water and tubs and they’ll be happy for hours. Great photos as well, lovely vibrant shots, are they done on the iPad?
