As soon as the sun goes down long enough to warm their faces, every child wants to play in the water. Make some floating sponge boats for your backyard water level. Keep these toys near the bath and the kids will have their boats sailed all over the harbor. Make sure to squeeze all of the water out of the sponge after playing as you don't want bacteria to build up.
