Summer time is officially here so I thought this little gem was worth sharing. My boys can have HOURS of fun with water balloons – filling them, throwing them and, now, using them as a pinata!
Simply fill the balloons with water, attach them to a high string or surface (the washing line is great!) and then bash away with a broomstick until they burst and shower the kids with water. Much better than lollies in my opinion!
This will only take a sec! Grab your roll of aluminium foil, let the kids unroll a loooooong strip, shape it to accommodate a stream of water, add kids and some small boats, animals or cars and off you go! Easy peasy.
With the weather warming up here, it’s a great time to get the little ones outside and soaking up some fresh air and sunshine.
Here are some fab ideas to get you started, just in case you are having trouble coming out of hibernation.

OK, so this home made kids car wash is the deluxe end of DYI but we have lots of easier projects too. All you need for this one is some chalk, a spray bottle of water and a suitable surface. Chalk keeps my kids entertained for hours.

These water walls are both fun to make and use. You can find the tutorial for the first one here. Such a cool way to explore with water!

And last but not least (because these two are the absolute easy peasiest ideas you will find!), these recycled milk or drink bottles will keep little ones happy AND they can help water the garden for you. Everyone’s a winner!

Whatever you do this weekend, soak up Spring (or Autumn for our northern hemisphere friends) and enjoy. x
