My mom, in all her brilliance, came up with this great idea for keeping Little Brother occupied while still having loads of fun.
It’s a cooler (or as some might call it, an ice chest). Filled with water. With cups and squeeze toys. That’s it.
And LB LOVED it. He played in that cooler for a loooong time. Dumping, pouring, scooping, squeezing and dumping some more. Why spend money on a water table when this works just as well??? You could even add a big bowl on one side and put some sand in there!
If you’re worried about the lid coming down and squishing those precious little fingers, just cut a small piece off of a pool noodle, cut a slit in it and hang it over the edge. That should keep it from shutting all the way.
My mom is both brilliant and beautiful!
