Water fun.

Last week we woke up to another perfect day, seriously, I don't know how Brisbane is doing this but each day is as gorgeous as the one before.

We were home all day and I had a whiny boy to deal with so we headed straight outside for some fun in the water.  I had used up all the food colouring in the messy playdate of that week but remembered some powdered paint in the back of the cupboard.

Once again I wasn't very adventurous but filled up different containers with the paint, added some bubbles to others and let him have fun filling them up and dumping them out.

 It was an opportunity to discuss how and why the water emptied from different containers.  Otto noticed that the water in the milk bottle came out in spurts, while the flour container poured out seamlessly.  We talked about how the size of the hole might make that difference and the different volumes of solution in each.

We moved this into the bigger baby pool and Otto climbed in for some paddle pool fun, the best part was thanks to the bubble bath I added he was good to go for the rest of the day.  I am so pleased the weather is getting warmer, Otto has always loved water play and we could do it year round in Jakarta, there is nothing like peeling off the layers and jumping right in.

We are off to our playdate tomorrow and I can't wait to see what we do.
