Pool Play

We have a small kiddie pool and while it is just the right size for a bit of splashing there isn't a whole lot else you can do in it...
or so you might think...
Have you seen these before? They are sponges that come in little capsules that open up after being placed in water. Last time we set up the pool I put a set of them in for the Little Guy. Talk about a lesson in patience! It took more that 5 minutes for the first one to open.
He had a great time watching, fishing around for, and eventually guessing what each creature was.
I'm going to keep an eye out for more of the sponge capsules because they would also make a great bath toy on a rainy day and eventually can be used for printing/stamping and other art projects too!
