This idea originated by Play At Home Mom LLC, you can find it here. The idea of playing with water and staying dry at the same time is fantastic! We did it slightly different from Play at Home Mom (basically just the size and color of the tarp).
What you need:
1 tarp – we used a 8×10 heavy duty tarp
Duct Tape – we used some Gorilla Tape. Stuff is strong!
This is a super easy project, just takes a little time.
Step one: lay out the tarp and fold it in half
Step two: Duct tape all around the edges leaving a small opening just large enough for the hose to be placed in. You may want to go around twice for good measure.
Step three: FILL IT UP! It is easier to left up the end that the hose is in while it fills up so that water doesn’t leak out. Once you have the amount of water you would like in it, just tape up that side too!
I have seen a few people place dish soap in it at this time so there are bubbles, toys, or any other objects. Just make sure that you don’t put anything that can poke a hole in it.
Step four: HAVE FUN!
