It's amazing what a little colored water and a few toy sea animals can spark in children. Em and G played with this for hours and had an entire story line happening.
I used a large Rubbermaid storage container and added liquid watercolors to turn our water ocean blue!
The kids loved to help get this set up. It only takes a few drops of the paint to get that great blue color.
The fun started when the animals started getting names! I love listening to the little stories that a 5 and 2 year-old can come up with. Imaginations are the best toy a child has. What a great way to cool off on a hot summer day!
