When I grow up, I want to own a water park. One with pools and all sorts of contraptions to shift water around. Now change that statement from when I grow up, to, when I win a couple of million dollars!

Watching water move is fascinating. Playing with water is mesmerising. Even though we are in the middle of winter here in Sydney right now, from last week’s Kids’ Co-Op link up, I can clearly see many of you are enjoying a very fun Summer!

Our winter hasn’t stopped my brood’s love of water play, so here are 10 fabulous invitations to play with water.
