With the kind of hot weather we've been having of late, there appear to be two options when it comes to small children; hide away in the cool, or go for some water play. We definitely did our fair share of both last week, but my pair of water babies will always prefer the latter option and seem to be drawn to water like a magnet.
A few weeks back I picked up a book about the water cycle because the little man had been asking lots of questions about where rain came from and what made rainbows. Its the cutest little story about the journey of a single drop of water, and they've both been really enjoying it. But in Nanny's garden we had an opportunity to not only embrace some water play but also bring a bit of a science lesson to life. We made our very own rainbows...
^ all we needed was a mist setting on the hose, and the light at the right angle
^ this beautiful boy was so excited to be jumping through his very own rainbows
^ this one preferred to stay out of the splash zone and laugh at her crazy brother from a distance
^ when did this little face get so grown up? (and can you spy another little rainbow...?)
