Something so simple turned into such a great activity for the babes I had to share it. The weather has turned a little warm here, and while the big kids are into their water balloons, I was trying to think up something equally fun and entertaining (and wet) for the babes. I haven't gotten around to getting a kiddie pool yet so the obvious choice was not an option. I had to get a little creative. Just as well. Good things sometimes happen when you are forced to work with what ya got ;)
Wasting no time he plunged into the bowl, up to his elbows, to uncover the toys. He would pull out a toy, play with it for a little bit and then dive back in for another. It ended up holding his interest for quite some time. I'm talking 20 plus minutes (which is huge in our little baby world). Once he emptied the bowl I just filled it up with toys again. It was a little baby discovery bowl and he was lovin it :)
One last thought. If you do this...load the bowl up with bubbles! Originally I had (you could hardly see the toys), but by the time I thought to grab the camera they had mostly disappeared.
