Toddlers love them some pools! At least, my boys did. I could fill a plastic wading pool with two inches of water, and they’d be happy for hours.
Fill it with toys: balls, sponges, cups and anything they can manipulate and play with. Foam squirt guns are great for older toddlers. Cups and action figures occupy kids of almost any age. Water wheels are super exciting and teach baby about physics.
A few drops of food coloring in your pool won’t hurt anything but will let baby experience something new.
Shaving cream, marbles and floating plastic fish are also super fun for your little one.
