As we head into the great British Summer, how many of you are planning that day out to the outdoor (and free!!!) paddling pool? We certainly are, well that is we tried last week...the weather was beautiful for around 5 days, the forecast looked good so we planned a trip to the local paddling pool, The Fairy Dell, for the weekend. We got the kids all excite for it..and then the weekend came...full of thunderstorms and a whole lotta rain. I needed to think quick, the monsters where expecting a splashy watery play kinda day...and not just jumping in puddles! So I came up with these 5 Ideas For...Indoor Water Play.

We haven't done a sensory tray for so long! I love this one, it would be absolutely perfect for all the monsters to enjoy!

We don't have a tuff spot but I am sure this would work just as well in a water tray or similar! I've also seen these sachets in Poundland so I may have to stock up on a few!
3. I love this Water Play Invitation To Play from Learn With Play At Home.

So many chances to explore, learn and most of all to play! We will definitely be trying this out!
4. Lukeosaurus and Me has the perfect water play but not water play activity with her Toddler Foam Sensory Play it looks super fun, and maybe I am a fool for thinking it looks pretty easy clean up mission too?

5. And sometimes? Sometimes you don't need anything special, all you need is a bit water and some cups to pour, I love how happy Monkey is in Becoming A Stay At Home's simple water play post.

And I love Caroline's ending statement:
''Doing this kind of thing is one of the things I love most about being a SAHM and I need to be less afraid of what could go wrong and think about how fun it could be instead.''
