It's been a hot dry summer for the past few weeks. I consulted with DH about water pistols and after initial hesitation about 'guns' and George's incessant talk about guns, we decided to let them enjoy the fun of water 'shooters' (as long as we each got one too!) I can't help but wonder if I were a younger parent, would I have hesitated at all about some fun like this? The result is lots of fun for all of us. At £2 each, these have a range of 6ft+ and are easy enough for the littlest one to use.
