Get Wet And Wild
Turn on the water and something magic happens. It's hard to explain why something so simple, can bring so much happiness to children of all ages. Whether it's bubble bath or a garden hose turned on in the back yard, kids can spend hours splashing and playing.

If you want to step up the fun, take your children to a playground with water features or even a water park. Here are some great places to check out.

Jamberoo Action Park
