On a hot afternoon I love to set up a water play activity for the kids. Letting them have fun and stay cool at all the same time.  This day I had an idea for a fun Fruit Salad Pool for water play. Water play is great to explore senses and most often involves lots of scooping and pouring which is a great way for the kids to work on their gross motor skills.  We had a fun afternoon staying cool in our fruit salad pool playing and learning along the way.

The boys love playing in the plastic pool in the summer.  It’s a great way to cool off on our hot days.  This day I decided to add some plastic fruit, bowls, spoons, and lemon & orange extract for scent. I told big brother it was like a fruit salad,lol.  The boys really enjoyed playing in the water.  They played with the bowls and pitcher, pouring the water everywhere (great for gross motor skills).  I was even pretty wet by the time we came in.  But that is ok because it was hot and it felt good to cool off. 

Here is our day.

My son loves spraying water from the hose.  He does not know it but squeezing the nozzle helps build up his little hand muscles (fine motor skills).  This water play activity is a great way to go over colors and types of fruit with the kids.

This is also a great way to promote sibling bonding and give them an activity that can be fun for multiple ages.

Simple hands on and open ended play is always a hit at my house.
