I know I’m always saying it, but Hazel loves to be outside. This morning I reintroduced her to the swimming pool and our sensory bins – all of which we haven’t played with since last summer because we’ve been a the parks all winter long. Anyways, I think we’ve refound Hazel’s love of the swimming pool and being in the backyard. As soon as I turned on the water and started cleaning the patio with the hose I thnk she started to remember how it all worked. She was ready to help me fill up the pool -with a little bit of cleaning first – and this year she is able to get in and out of the pool all by herself. No-help-needed. Not sure how I feel about that one.
Hazel loves playing with these cute Nuby Tub Tugs Bath Toy – I know they are bath toys, but they are so versatile and totally usable in the pool too! They are super soft tug boats that float easily in the water. I especially liked that they were very sturdy and always stayed afloat. Also, perfect if you’re wanting to help your little one develop better hand-eye coordination. These cute interactive faces on each boat made it especially fun because it was almost as if they had come to life. My favorite part about watching Hazel play with these tug boats was when she made them talk to each other. Her conversations started like this:
In a high voice: Hi how are you?
In a low voice: Oh I good. What are you doing?
In a high voice: Oh, just swimming in the water. Seee! As she swims the high-voiced tub boat around the pool.
They are BPA Free and available here, on Amazon. They also squirt water from their mouths which makes it especially fun when you’re playing with a friend or a parent!
How do you enjoy outside time with your toddler? What are your favorite toys to play with in the water?
