As soon as the weather went above 90 degrees in Houston it became pool season in our backyard! We use our inflatable pool pretty much every day and this lemon print pool from Bed Bath & Beyond is our summer favorite! I also found this amazing pink stripe umbrella to keep our pool out of the sun regardless of what time of day.
I’ve included five activities below to keep your inflatable pool in use all summer long!
I add a few pumps of baby bubbly bath to the pool and add a few inches of water. I prefer to use this over dish soap just in case it gets in little eyes!
The bubbles gown so there’s no need to fill it to the top. I’ll add a handful of plastic cups and a few toys and Piper is in heaven!
Throw some plastic fish or bath toys in the pool and use nets to “fish” them out! You can have your kiddo count, call out colors or the name of the animal they’re catching. Makes it fun and educational!
The best of both worlds – ball pit and pool! We fill up the pool with a 3-4 inches of water and the rest with plastic balls.
Add a few dollops of foam shaving cream inside an empty pool. Bury toys in the foam and go hunting!
Put a blanket in the bottom of a dry pool and a few pillows along the sides. Bring out snacks on plastic plates and climb in the pool!
