So, we live in the frozen north. And I am extremely cheap. When you put those two conditions together, you get two kids swimming in a Tupperware tub and a sled because I am not paying $50 for a plastic kiddie pool, dangit.
Aside from passing cars slowing down to stare at the child splashing in a bucket, we all had a good time.
Who needs expensive toys when you are creative, flexible, or desperate to end your children’s constant whining that they are hot?
