Today I created a super simple outdoor water table just by using a shallow plastic storage bin filled with water and placing it on top of a taller plastic bin. It is the perfect height for toddlers and super cheap to put together, especially if you already have these random bins in your house like I did.
First I just filled it with plastic floaty toys and a few cups and a funnel for pouring.
After a while, we added purple food coloring to make the water even prettier and more fun.
A while later, we added some ice cubes.
There are a million ways to play with this simple water table. I can't wait to see how our water table play progresses throughout this spring and summer!
