Water play is a huge part of our summer fun, my kids love to get wet to cool off and it is a great way to keep them entertained outdoors. On my oldest daughter’s first birthday we got her a Step2 water table and it is still used every summer all summer long. Until recently we have not had a garage so the table was outside all winter and it has taken a beating so it was time for a new one. Since we loved out original Step2 water table we of course looked to Step2 for a new one. This time we got the Spte2 Splash & Scoop Bay. The Step2 Splash & Scoop Bay is a combo table for both sand and water. While I am not normally a fan of combining the two the new innovative cover for the sand keeps them separate which makes the water play even more fun is very attractive.
The Step2 Splash & Scoop Bay comes with 5 piece accessory set: water tower with slide, spinner and removable cup, shark scoop, and shovel/rake plus the cover which can be put over the sand or water. The sand side can hold up to 30 lbs of sand and the water side can hold up to 3 gallons of water. I love using water tables inside during the winter for water or even snow ( yes I have been known to fill our water table with snow). When my kids are sick or it is bad weather I throw beach towels on the floor in the kitchen, drag the water table inside and fill it up. For my girls the water table makes the perfect doll swimming pool or underwater zoo for their collection of Schleich animals. It has even been known to be a car wash when little boys are over too. When the water table is outside they do the same thing plus often I can convince them to water my plants for me! My old water table did not have a plug and this is a huge improvement. Outside I just unplug and water the grass, inside I put a pitcher underneath for easy cleanup!
I really do not understand how other moms survive summer without a water table my girls use it daily and even my 9 year old brother-in-law was playing in the water when he was over last week. Water play is a fun and easy way to entertain your kids outdoors and Step2 makes my favorite kind! Be sure to follow Step2 on Facebook and Twitter and signup for Birthday Club emails.
