From Ru at Hedda Dabbler comes the idea of a watering can for kids. She notes, “It is so versatile – a purse, a planter, a container of any sort really – and best of all, it is intended to do that most exciting of all things – pour water!”

SqueegeeAh, yes, the perpetual fascination with water. That coincides nicely with my own hardware-store idea for the week, a plastic squeegee. It’s a great bathtub toy, especially with a little extra shampoo or bubble bath in the mix. Besides, “squeegee” has to be on the “top ten most fun words to hear a toddler say” list.
