Watering Hole

Even your youngest can have sink time. Create a safe "playpen" by backing up three chairs around them and give them a small cup and a trickle of water. The minutes will tick by (I got about 20) as you prepare dinner or get some kitchen chores done. I think my sweet Oliver must have drank 27 little cupfuls of water that afternoon. He was soaked head to toe. smiling and laughing, but soaked still the same ---- with the fullest diaper on him that evening I had seen in months. You know, the water balloon kind that weigh 10 pounds.

grand fun.

COST: free

I love the chair pen....much cheaper than buying one of those learning towers! Looks like he had a great time exploring the water.

This is so funny Tiffany - I did this exact thing today. But I didn't do the 3 chair thing and I REALLY needed to. Thanks so much for the tip.

The thing which you said is very funny and three chair concept is so good.

Great idea - my kids have always been independent climber types and I wish I'd thought of this when they were younger.

I'd like to suggest a link? How do I do that ?
