Polly pool party

Friday morning, I put together another water bin for the Hooligans.  This one was a Polly pool party!

 It’s a little different than any of the others that we’ve made recently because it’s oh-so pink and purplicious!supplies and materials in polly pool party

Isn’t it purdy?

The Hooligans had a great time with it, and after a little while one of them asked for a second bowl to play in.  I gave them our “washing up bowl” and filled it with water.  This turned into a big game of scooping water, Pollys and beads from the big bin into the bowl.  Then when the bowl was full, they’d pour it back into the bin.

Then there were many many requests for “more water”, “yellow this time!”, “blue this time”, “green this time”…

So I spent the next half hour or so filling up jugs of assorted coloured water.
