Then we added water, which immediately made everything much more exciting. Some items felt different when wet than they had done when dry.
The combination of bright colours, glitter and sunshine made for a great visual experience.
The clear box also allowed for different views of the watery scene.
Abigail enjoyed looking at the items floating around from under the water.
The children spend some time exploring the objects both in and out of the water.
Of course no water play session would be complete without soaking wet children, who decide to strip off and get into the water. This is the last picture I have before they loose all their clothes (I think Theo has already sat in the water with his nappy on at this point). The children decided it was nice enough weather to try out sitting in the water. The bath mat felt funny on their feet and butt. After we had finished they went upstairs to have a nice warm bath and get dried and changed!
