Play in the paddling pool – Tick!

Although rare in the UK, we do get a few days each summer where it is just too hot and sticky to do anything. These days can be a real nightmare with young children who become bored easily, and irritable with the heat.


My solution: get out the paddling pool!

10 minutes of preparation is all that’s required, for hours of fun! You may even get a few minutes of rest, while you supervise!


Learning opportuinites: filling and pouring can teach young children about capacity and volume. There is also the opportunity to discuss water safety with preschool age children

Even the big kids can get involved too! (By which, I mean my 25 year old sister! 🙈)
