The dog days of summer….
We are in the heat of it, that’s for sure! My 3 year old daughter loves to turn on the sprinkler and run through it with great joy and pleasure. While part of me embraces her enthusiasm just as I did at her age, I can’t help but think of the current water shortage (has anyone looked at their water bills lately???), and what alternative form of water entertainment I can provide to her that will be Eco Savvy and fun all at the same time.
This year, we are trying a few things:
- A water table on the grass, so that when little spills occur it waters the grass as well!
- Joint watering time – when I water my garden of herbs, tomatoes, onions, and summer flowers, I make her part of the fun. We fill up the watering can together, and she waters the plants for me, thus satisfying her fun time with this chore.
- Swimming lessons – all kids love to swim, why not get them some time in the pool and learn some safety as well??
