My kids and I along with my cousin, her daughter (who was out of school last week for Spring break), my aunt and aunt's best friend went to the beach last week. My aunt is SO creative, she was thinking of my baby. When I saw her pull out a bit shovel and shower curtain I asked what's that for? It's to make a pool for the baby she replied, how? I was now curious!
As I watched, they dig a nice size hole, placed the thick shower curtain into the hole - leaving a large portion outside on the top of the sand and then they poured some of the water from of the ocean in the hole portion - there was his little pool. Perfect and just his size! (If you are wondering about the voc's from the PVC shower curtain - don't it was outside and I didn't smell any at all!)
I was glad she did this because he hated the ocean! Sure beats bringing a blow up pool!
By the time it was to time to leave it was full of sand but it's OK, all the kids loved it!
