how to make a small water table for babies
Looking for a way for a baby to delight in some summertime water play? Easy! inspired by parent Hacker Misty, we like to turn baby’s high chair tray into a small water table for warm weather splashing on hot days (works indoors or on the patio — mind your nicer floors!). Whitney’s niece models this maneuver for us.
As discovered on ParentHacks, we adore this suggestion to fill baby’s high chair tray with water for cooling off on hot days. mama Misty suggested this activity for hot, housebound babies everywhere. I especially appreciate trying the high-chair-as-water-table when I am jailed by another napping child.
Misty reports: baby Madeline’s high chair has a very deep lip, enough to hold about half an inch of water. Misty filled that with tap water, stripped her down, and let her splash around as she wants. It is amusing to see her reaction when she splashes herself, and her apparent enjoyment of the new experience.
