While we love going to various local pools with friends some of them cost, a membership would definitely cost, and it takes time, energy and gas to load up in the car to go somewhere.
Since we are in an apartment and don't have pool access I came up with this fun way for Baby Girl to splash around on a hot day:
1. Take a plastic storage bin and fill it with just enough water that it's not too heavy to carry outside.
2. Throw in a few toys.
3. Set it outside in the shade and put the baby in the tub!
We did this for a full hour!
She doesn't look too thrilled in the picture, so if you're not convinced that this is fun check out this video:
I know it looks very dangerous that she's standing up in this thing... I was holding on to it the whole time so she wouldn't knock it over!
