A sturdy plastic small pool goes for around $9.98 at Walmart, Toys R Us, and Kmart, if you find a good place to store it and the right ingredients you can keep the little ones busy rain or shine.
Below you’ll find some of the many uses for your children:

1. Buy the cheapest price. Fill the pool 1/4 of the way. Throw some toys and cups, watch the fun begin!
2. Get a few bags of play sand and repeat step one.
3. Put warm water in the pool. Fill 1/4 of its capacity. Give children clear plastic cups, then give them liquid food coloring and have them discover how the colors mix in the water and how to create new colors as well.
4. Get some pit balls from Toys R us, try to fill the pool with them. You can have the children jump in it, pretend to swim or hide specific toys and have a scavenger hunt.
5. Take the pool outside and just let them play in the water.
6. I have witnessed that flipping the pool over makes a great hiding spot!


I’ve had the pleasure to witness dozens of young lives grow and evolve in the past 15 years. The more I work with children the greater is my conviction that young lives are the key to our progress and evolution. Early childhood isn’t a glitch in our lives, it isn’t a bare memory that will fade eventually nor is the equivalent of a 5-year rule that life will start over after kindergarten. Early childhood is the time where brand new minds open up to understand this world. Children are hungry, they are born hungry, from the moment they take their first breath and remain hungry for the next 5 years. Our children are hungry for understanding, knowledge, they are hungry to understand social-emotional situations, themselves and others.
