Makeshift water gun play

Fridays are one of my at home days with Nathan. Besides taking Nathan along for the usual run of errands to the shops, it can sometimes be challenging to come up with ways to keep him occupied (apart from resorting to the big black screen… which I try to turn to only as a last resort).

Here’s one clever little idea I came up with recently…

A makeshift plastic syringe water gun play

I have a number of these spare plastic syringes lying around from previous medicine purchases. I simply handed one to my toddler with a bucket of water and turned him loose in the garden.

It’s really very similar to playing with a water gun. But the novelty of using this unusual object to shoot water jets is enough to keep my little one intrigued for a good while.

Hope you’re having a nice Friday.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
