The sun is out, temperatures are rising, and we’re excited to hit the beach. You will be too when you and the family try out this great DIY project for creating a kiddie pool at the beach. No more worrying about your littlest ones navigating the rough ocean waters. Instead, create this fun and easy wading pool for the infants and toddlers to play in.
Constructing a kiddie pool at the beach is easy. You will need:
Shower curtain liner
Digging a hole in the sand big enough that the kids have room to play.
Place the shower liner in the hole, making sure it’s flat against the bottom of the hole. Bury the edges of the liner in the sand to keep it in place.
Use the buckets to get ocean water and fill the pool.
