Bath toys gain new life as pool toys

There's still time and heat for the kiddie pool! Jenna's good-sense hack:

So, for all those late summer afternoons when the thrill of the kiddie pool itself has worn off…we just figured out that bath toys, especially the ones that have been forgotten INSIDE, make perfect pool toys outside. Our daughter thought they were the coolest thing this afternoon, when she ignored them for weeks at bathtime.

Many toys can go from outdoor to indoors. Great idea using the pool toys for bath toys too.

We use old nasal aspirators (clean ones) to squirt water when playing in the pool. This is especially great since I'm not a fan of water guns. It's a great way to use something that has been retired around our house.

Everything is ok in this stages
