What were we up to on this particular day? Oh, you know…we just folded a plastic tarp in half, duct-taped it shut and then filled it up with the hose to make a giant water bed in our back yard. Nothing unusual here!
This was another activity I found on Pinterest and it came to us via Go Kid Yourself. I did this on a hot, complaint-filled afternoon and the kids were amazed when I whipped this up on the spur of the moment using stuff from the garage. My tarp was a little worse for wear with holes here and there but I just slapped some tape over them as we noticed them and it held up well enough.
Wyatt thought this was completely awesome and he ran across it, rolled around on it, and squished the water back and forth with his hands for quite a while. Augie was completely freaked out by it though and barely touched it. Go figure!
