Research has shown a vital role of play in the child’s overall development. Most children love splashing out in the water and by the time they are in their second year most of them forget any fear they may have had. One can help one’s child have fun by trying these innovative methods.

  1. One can let the child play in the bath. Many children love empty plastic bottles in the bath which they many times use as water pistols. Beakers and strainers can be given to the child so he can create a variety of effects. A number of household items can be adapted to make bath times fun. Children love watching water pour out of objects and plastic fruit boxes with perforations are quite amusing for them. Other good toys include measuring spoons, miniature watering cans, ice cube trays and sieves with different types of holes.
  2. Paddling pools are great for the summer to play around with. Cost-effective versions are available in stores. The smaller, circular variety which one can blow up serve equal purpose as the expensive, detailed larger ones.
  3. During the summer days, it is a good idea to lay a tarpaulin sheet on the ground and play on the hose or plant spray over it. Once it is completely soaked, it will make a perfect slide for the child.
  4. The bottom of a plastic container can be pierced to make a small hole and fill it with coloured water. This container can be attached to the back of the child’s tricycle or bicycle. He will be thrilled to see the zig-zag trails of coloured water that the cycle will leave as he cycles around.
  5. Majority of children adore messy time so if one can arrange for a tap in the backyard and put a container of soil nearby so he can mix water with soil and make up his own mud. The same can be followed with paints. One needs to be prepared for the mess-but the children will freak out on it.
  6. Make an iceberg that the child can play with in the bath or paddling pool. Try putting some food colouring into a balloon and then inflate it with water. Place it into a pan just in case it bursts and then place it into the freezer compartment. Once it solidifies, one can prick the balloon and remove it off to reveal a perfect rounded iceberg.
  7. Sand-pits are excellent play areas where one can make one from old plastic paddling pool, an abandoned rubber tyre or a cement-lined cavity. It is always advisable to use washed river sand for this.
