J loves playing with water outside. His favorite thing to do is filling and dumping all sorts of containers. It’s a lot of fun for him…but not always for me.
My problem with this type of play is that J can’t fill the containers by himself. The valve on our water hose is tight and a bit tough for him to turn it off and on. He also doesn’t have the hand strength to pull the nozzle on the sprayer. I don’t want to take it off and leave the water on to soak the yard. So, I was stuck standing by the water hose filling up containers over and over…and over…and over again.
I a needed a solution to our little water problem…and I found one!
I bought this drink dispenser for J’s birthday party. It’s been sitting in our basement being unused since then. I remembered it the other day and knew I had a solution to my problem.
This thing is plastic, holds 3.5 gallons of water, and has a simple nozzle that J can work on his own. Perfect!
He loved filling up containers over and over again. The dispenser turned into a fun toy that kept him happy and engaged all morning. I was able to sit and enjoy my time outside too. No more standing by the water hose for me!
It’s also great for hydration!
This could also be a solution for those of you in apartment complexes, or who don’t have access to a water hose.
