Bring out the sunblock


A couple of summers ago I worked at a daycare. Lets just say that its a job every high schooler and middle schooler needs to experience. It was the best form of birth control! Don't get me wrong I loved all the kids, but loved to see 5:00 come everyday even more. My class had boys and girls between 8 to 12 years old. I never imagined how hard it would be to keep children that age amused for 8 hours a day. It was especially hard to find activities that both the girls and boys liked at the same time. Usually my day consisted of breaking up arguments between the two. The daycare owner found one of these and the kids absolutely loved it. The best part was that it inflated and deflated in about 5 minutes. The worst thing was storage. It never fit back in the box that it came in. Normally, we just covered it with a tarp. Most of the kids fought over the squirt guns, but all in all the days that we used this "contraption" were the most peaceful. With summer coming up I am debating on whether or not Hannah and Lily "need" one.
