We spend so much time and money getting fancy toys for kids, checking specifications, ensuring high quality, etc. But I have come to realize that there is just so much around us, at home, in the garden or yard that works much better in developing curiosity, allowing for experimentation and providing hours of endless fun for my toddler boys. I am posting a video of a recent holiday where the boys discovered the garden hose! In spite of the cool morning weather and icy cold water, the two had a blast! And we got the lawn watered too!
