The first bout of warm weather here, and I’m realizing that we don’t have any toddler-appropriate outdoor toys. Sure there’s a swingset in the yard and some bouncy balls, but they don’t hold a toddler’s attention for very long. Well Bean has solved this problem today, by insisting she bring her bath-time bucket outside.
The bucket is home to her bath toys, namely a flock of yellow ducks. What better toys to bring outside than washable ones? The ducks took over the yard; playing hide-and-seek, swinging on the swings, riding down the slide…And, when we were finished, they were easily collected in the bucket. The promise of giving duckies a bath in the sink was enough to avoid the “I-don’t-wanna-go-in-the-house” meltdown too! Bath toys outside work for me!
