DIY Frugal Water Table Fun

It's HOT & there is no better way to beat the heat than with water!

I have always wanted to get a water table for the Lil Divas but
they can be rather costly so to kick off our Water Themed Week
I whipped up an easy, no frills DIY Water Table.

I used a plastic 66 gallon container I bought on sale at Target for only $7.99, some of our beach & bath toys and of course we had to add bubble solution for some sudsy fun. Now, that's my idea of frugal fun and the Lil Divas absolutely LOVED it! 

There was some toy washing,

lots of pouring, measuring, filling & dumping of water

some soup making,

and even a little scavenger hunting! 
I had them close their eyes while I hid an item in the tub 
and they had to find it based on clues that I gave - 
such as it's color, shape and other descriptions.

What DIY or Water Fun have you had lately?


  1. Kids love to play in water, don't they? Very good idea!

  2. I have a similar tub, only slightly bigger. that's a great idea. I'll do the same thing with my daughter. I'm sure she'll love that. thanks for the idea.

  3. Awww, remembering when my kids were little like this (they're now in their 20's & 30's & one that is 15).....and how my boys LOVED the water table I set up on the carport in the shade! Giggles and splashes!!! What fun! -Deb on the Hip Homeschool Hop, July 2011
