In the beginning of summer I did a camping day (pictures) with the girls. They had a blast and got me thinking about doing other themed days. So today, (yes it took 2 months for me to actually do another one) we had water day! We had 5 moms and 8 kids ranging in ages from 22 months to 5 years old participate. I planned games, centers, and had 2 slip-N-slides going. Here are some of the other activities we did.
- Two Water Discovery Tables- This was filled with bath toys, cups, funnels, eye droppers, fish and net.
- Water Limbo- This is played just like regular limbo but with a water hose. After the kids did this for awhile I would give them an animal and they had to act out the animal while going under the hose.
- Dry, Dry, Wet- This was very popular! It’s like Duck, Duck, Goose only the”ducker” carries a small cup filled with water. When they choose someone they say wet and pour the water on that persons head.
- Sponge Relay- We split the kids into 2 teams and had them put a wet sponge on their head and run/walk with it to a bowl. Then they had to squeeze the sponge out and run it back to the next person in line. They didn’t really get that it was a race but they had fun with it.
It was such a great time for the kids and moms and a great way to spend a hot summer day in Florida. We’ve decided that next time we are going to have an adult water day!
