We have big plans for our Summer Play series this month! You may have seen our post Play The Summer Away: Water Bin Play by The Sugar Aunts post last week where we let everyone know we are joining Jaime over at Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails in this fun water bin play series. Each Monday in July we are planning a different themed water bin. You will be able to see Jaime’s version and ours. We are very excited to see the two different versions of a same theme and by the end of July, share 10 different water bins with you!
You can see all of the water bins in one place on our Water Bin Pinterest Board:
We started July off right with a Relaxing Lavender Water Bin.
This was very easy to throw together:
purple finger paint
scraps of purple plastic table cloths
clear plastic cups for pouring and transferring…and scooping, and dumping…
and a few drops of lavender oil
The scent was the best touch for this! Completely relaxing and we all played in the water loving the smell of lavender and cloves! We just used an under the bed storage bin and it was perfect for scooping and pouring the water. Baby Girl loved dumping the water, scooping it up, and pouring the purple water into cups.
We’ve used this storage bin before for water play and Baby Girl knows where the fun is…getting right in the water!
I love the glitter on Baby Girl’s little legs 🙂
And the driveway is only slightly glittery.
So, there you have our version of a relaxing Lavender Water Bin…Now, swing on over to see what Jaime and her crew came up with: Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails: Relaxing Lavender/Purple Water Bin
There are four more weeks of Water Bin Themes coming up, so be sure to check back each Monday and find some great ways to play the summer away!
