Last year we just didn’t seem to get many sunny days where a paddling pool was needed, but this year we seem to have an abundance of them and paddling pools are selling out everywhere! I hunted high (and low) for one, and can categorically state that if you are after one then check your local supermarkets, as this is where I picked my family sized one from with success.
Kids of all ages love the padding pool, but here are a few tips of ways to make it better:
Fill up your pool with water first thing in the morning, it then has all day to heat up so it isn’t too cold for the tiny ones.
Use some form of cover, this is vital I think. It stops bugs and leaves getting in at night and helps keep it fresh for the little people.
Are the kids bored after a few days? Liven it up and add a bag of balls (like the type you use for the ball pools), they will love having something new to do in there and of course it gives them a good clean too!
Have towels on standby. One on the floor is great for people to stand on, it helps stop grass getting into the pool from wet feet when they decide they wanna jump back in. Towels on standby to wrap the kids up in also fabulous, like our Cuddly Bunny Towel which is snug and absorbent and has the cute factor too!
