Yes, you can play with the water outside…

…As long as you help Mummy with some washing up!!

As the saying goes – “2 birds, 1 stone”! I had some glasses and dishes that needed cleaning before taking to the charity shop, and Annabelle needed water play. So we joined forces!

I showed her all the glasses that needed cleaning and asked her if she would like to help do some washing up outside. I don’t think she actually stopped to say yes, but I knew her response was positive from the speed that she hurtled off to get her shoes on, and find a blanket and the water tray!

We took a couple of bowls of soapy water out and sat in the sunshine to do our washing up. (Annabelle only washed some disposable plastic champage flutes but shhh don’t tell her!)
