The day I prepared all the food for our day trip to Arusha National Park I needed a big chunk of time to myself in the kitchen. Even with a great helper like Anita, it’s still difficult to keep Max and Elly from wanting Mommy to be with them.
So to keep them busy for a while I set up a makeshift water table outside. It was a warm sunny day, perfect for playing in the water.
I carried the coffee table outside and covered it with the shower curtain liner I had just taken down the day before. Then I filled up a plastic container with warm water, gathered a few measuring cups and small bowls and voila!–instant water table (for zero cost, I might add).
Max and Elly jumped right in, needing no instruction on what to do with the water and cups.
When I was putting the shower curtain on the table, the cat saw his chance to hang out in a shady spot and get some sleep. Imagine his surprise when streams of water starting flowing down all around him!
Max and Elly did a great job moving the water from the large container to the smaller cups.
With the weather getting warmer here, this will definitely be one of our go-to activities.
