We had a fun day of painting pictures (and ourselves), playing with the NEW water table, and taking multiple baths. I was beyond excited when Todd came home yesterday with this new water table/picnic table for the kiddies. I wanted it sooo bad.
The kids LOVE it. They ran right over and sat down at it. This was a little snacktime photo from today.
This was right after breakfast this morning when they first saw it. I wasn’t sure just how wacko they would go with the water, but let’s just say it was pretty much empty of water when they were through. Partly from splashing, and partly from the fact that it is quite easy for them to pull the plug and drain the water (onto the floor below, that is). That’s my only problem with this thing, other than that it’s awesome. We used it for the water table, for snacktime and also played with our playdough on it today.
And a little recap of our painting party: Yes, it was a gigantic mess. I had to give the kids baths immediately after along with doing laundry and scrubbing the mats in their playroom but it was all worth it.
