When it is really hot and dry outside, children can suffer from lack of sunlight and exercise.We want them to enjoy fresh air and full range of movement, daily, but of course, no one sends them outdoors to play, with the goal of heat exhaustion!
We know how water helps, yet, not everyone can afford or even wants a facility for swimming. This is when a small wading pool serves best.
Children playing in water are cool enough. And in this small water element, these large children will not drown.
Although we might predict these children, who know how to swim, might find such a puddle boring, I remembered the fun I had in my childhood and decided to give it a try.
Success! They completely emptied it three times before they tired of this game of splash. They were pleasantly tired and satisfyingly rosy-cheeked when they clamored at the back door for some lunch. They even napped afterward, at their age!
When I have no small visitors, how easy to empty and dry this pool for storage!
At $10.00, it was a great bargain.
Why would anyone want to surrender this moment to someone else? Home’s cool!
