Deep Blue Sea Bin
When temperatures are on the rise, one of my favourite activities to set up is a water bin. Putting together something as simple and beautiful as our Ocean Bin is as easy as collecting a few items from around your home and garden, and placing them in a clear storage bin filled with coloured water. You can make your bin as basic or as ornate as you like. Either way, it’s such an easy activity to pull together. The Hooligans played with this one for hours, and we switched up the contents every day, adding different toys and items found around our home. A water bin is a wonderful way to keep your children cool while encouraging imaginative play. And I have to admit, I enjoy creating these bins as much as the children enjoy playing with them.
ABOUT JACKIE: I’m a Mom of two boys, and a Home Daycare Provider to an amazing bunch of little people I lovingly refer to as the Hooligans. At my daycare we’re all about simple but creative play, and spending time in the great-outdoors. My passion is dreaming up crafts and activities that will keep the Hooligans learning, laughing and exploring their world through good, old-fashioned play.
