The Magical Waters of Pink Water Bay

magical water for play

Welcome to the magical waters of Pink Water Bay.

Giving a little sparkle to play can be as easy as pink food colouring, glitter and water.  It’s all about the little sparkle that lights up the imagination.


Large under-bed storage container

Pink (or other colour) food colouring

Glitter (optional)

Barbies or other toys

It’s warm here in Brisbane now and the kids are playing with water more often. I’m still trying get organised after my trip to India, (oh the piles washing!) so after school one afternoon, I set up water play for the children outside.  It took me less than 5 minutes, and the children were outside playing for hours.

Note: because the food colouring is so diluted, it doesn’t stain hands or toys.

I added a little glitter for that extra sparkle but it IS messy and it works well without it too.
