Dad Tip of the Day: Soak Them

Dad Tip of the Day: Kids love to get wet, so soak them every chance you get.

Kids can have a ton of fun and build a lot of memories playing outside and getting wet. In addition to the fun, there are benefits as well, such as keeping them active, wearing them out so they sleep better, and getting some vitamin D from the sun.

I always try to keep a good supply of water balloons on hand, and it is one of the favorite things to do with the neighbors when they come over. We do not have an in-ground pool, but do have kiddie pools and slip-in-slides. There is always the hose and buckets of water as well. The bottom line is that the kids will enjoy the water in any shape or form, generally speaking. We also occasionally like to make mud, and get super dirty, which is probably one the favorites of Jacob.

Jacob has so much fun in the water, that he now dumps buckets of water on his own head just for fun! Here are a few pictures:

For us, water time outside is a great chance to get a little wild and crazy without worrying about breaking something in the house, which is always in the forefront of your mind when you have are having too much fun. Cooling off is also great, as it may mean we can run the air conditioning less as well!

Thanks for reading!

Our kids can’t get enough of the water. Water balloons provide hours of fun and even just running through a sprinkler. This year we are setting up a pool for them. The excitement is already bubbling over.

Hi Brian, making fun with family and WATER. Indeed kids do like it much and here the same. Every time when the sun is shining, the waterpistols are loaded and we hunt after eachother. As you know; from a small balloon, the game change into a bucket, after the bucket, the hose shows up ,... and then ,.. everybody is wet ,.. soaking wet :-)

Lovely Jacob💋.....have a fun time with water. I'm really happy to see him enjoying. I think kids always be happy as their mind be always cool. I pray to God that your kid will be a great man🎓🎓🎓🎓🎓

Hello how are you, this is the best thing to let the kids get wet jajajajaja the water is magic, I love the photo where Jacob wet his head enjoy it to the fullest, if at some point the children cry a lot nothing like tell them let's play with water and smart happiness returns to his face

"Soak them." hahaha Absolutely! Kids love water. Cute gif, btw. :-)

I totally agree with you my friend @brian.rrr, the children love to play and get wet with the water, even more if it is outdoors and under the sun. I also think that those are the moments that they enjoy the most, all my little cousins also liked to get wet and play with water. Moments like these are that you as parents should make them repeat many times, since children always remember and remember their happiest moments, besides that it is good for their health to laugh and have fun, so they grow healthy and strong . Jacop looks very happy playing with the buckets of water, I like to see everyone so happy and united as a family. I congratulate you, you are a wonderful family, continue like that, like an excellent father.

Every child must feel the same, happy when playing water and sad when the water is out in the bucket

I think it is time for the ice bucket challenge for him! Haha jk

There are sites around my town that has water fountain type things that come out of the ground and spray for the kids to plan in! They love it!

Hahahaha I love Jacob is so cute and so fun always goes behind the fun, you're right children play with water I think it's the best for us, tell mom we'll help her scrub but we ended up playing with water and foam hahaha good times

Greetings, What a beautiful baby, it reminds me of my son since I love him and seeing this image gives me many memories just trying to protect him in not getting sick since at his age it seems to be something common a simple wet

jejeje simply beautiful that baby, that will do with my girl when this bigger, a greeting to you and your family @ brian.rrr

Excellent topic, to address in "schools for parents" I find it very interesting to let the children play in their innocence, because when we reach adults those memories aside from making us laugh, they fill us with much tenderness, and if they are more consenting parents. I congratulate you for this great contribution and support in your children, sowing seeds of values and union. very beautiful your son.saludos, @ brian.rrr

I have never seen something like this. It's a bit different. I usually spray my kids with water from a hose.

What the child did was so adorable, and made me think of my childhood

Children have the happiness of being happy with little ... A bucket, water and their potatoes... Seeing the face of joy in your child is priceless. Regards!

The most wonderful thing about your article is the time you dedicate to your child, be it with water, mud, cleaning or playing, love is that you enjoy your child. Blessings my friends!

I love the pictures , little ones like to play in the water x

haha unique idea, the boy is superb.

when the boy run away,he looks so pretty and cute. like him and best wish for him.

Young children love to play water. When the water runs through the body, it feels so cold.
Good water play for the development of knowledge for children.

Hahaha very cool 👌
This make him happy and fresh.

How beautiful is Jacob. My children also love playing with water. What fun!

it seems like you need more water every morning. i remember a little time like to play water. it is same as your child. i love kids

You right about kids loving to get wet cause mine when they were little tried to do it every chance they got.

a super fun idea! If I had room for this game, I would not hesitate to use water every weekend, instead I use a small pool to play with and a water pistol which is the wildest part! I'm always looking after my hair so I don't lose my hair, he likes Mommy to get angry, and then he eats me with kisses until I forgive him! Enjoying our children is a great privilege, congratulations.
