Water Table: Pretend Salon and Sous-Chef

Water Table Salon Sous Chef (3)

Rainy weather means we’ve been bringing the patio water table… inside! Here are two fun ways to play with the table indoors that won’t create too much splashing. That said, you’ll probably want a beach towel underneath to prevent spills or slips!

Our first game was a spa day for Veronika’s dolls. We filled one compartment of the water table with soapy water and the other had clean water for rinsing.

The dollies were soon loving their warm bath. This “spa” even included a water slide!

Veronika loved giving them bottles of milk in the tub, too. How luxurious!

Then they had full body wraps before being toweled off.

Veronika then closed her salon business to open up a restaurant! Incidentally, this is the perfect activity to keep a toddler busy while you prep real food. I handed across a variety of toy fruits and veggies, along with our real vegetable scrubber brush, and she soon was happily preparing “soup”.

Cups and a colander for pouring added to the splashy fun.

In sum, we managed to enjoy great water play on a rainy day… without getting rained on!
