2 DIY Water Tables

2 DIY Water Tables

Have you been enjoying the warm weather as much as we have? Warm temperatures and cool water always mix nicely so I've been wanting to buy/make our own water table. Something like this well-crafted homemade water table found over at I Make Stuff is ideal. But that requires some planning and a trip to the hardware store. I need a water table right now!

So this is what I came up with in a pinch. I emptied out two shallow toy bins (IKEA Trofast) and then set them on top of a couple of stools. That's it; instant water table. When filled the weight of the water keeps the bins from shifting. Not only was it simple, it was free AND it doesn't require any additional storage space, which I don't have. Best of all the kids really enjoyed it.

Of course we'd love to build something like the table over at I Make Stuff. Check out more photos of her creation at her blog.
