3 of the Coolest Sand and Water Tables for Toddlers in 2016

I believe that the toddler years are some of the best for creativity because kids are curious, with an innocence that comes with easy smiles and bright eyes. We lose that somewhere, so it is important for us, as parents, to encourage little imaginations.

The following 3 among this year's top sand and water tables for toddlers are designed to jog kiddos’ imaginations, leading to a more fulfilling, creative childhood overall. In short, these are the coolest of the cool sand and water tables.

When I was a youngin’ (yep, my southern roots showing through with the slang), I would mix sand from my sandbox with water from our duck pond. True, it wasn’t the most sanitary mash-up, and I got in trouble A LOT for doing it. Sand and water tables would have saved me a few timeouts and “muddy” dresses. Ha ha.

Without further ado:


Step2 Cascading Cove Sand and Water Table

Cascading Cove. Sounds like a paradise to me. This sand and water table is decked out in gorgeous, vivid green and blue, with an umbrella for summertime fun.

Several kiddos can play at once.

There are two sides to the table—one for 3 gallons of water and one for 10 gallons sand, but you can converge and mold both together for sandcastles in the middle.

The table lid also doubles as a racing maze for your youngster’s own supply of miniature cars.


Little Tikes Treasure Hunt Sand and Water Table

I love the idea of a treasure hunt in your own backyard.

This sand and water table is a bit unique because the table itself is set-up for sand, while the lid flips to double as a basin for water.

Kiddos can mix the two, or float boats and splish-splash in the water while they bury sandy treasures.

The bright colors are vivid and out-of-this-world bold. Includes a sand shovel and bucket.


Step2 Big Bubble Splash Water Table

I am diggin’ this sand and water table because it has an extra bubble-blower feature. Powered with 4 AAA batteries, this is a two-person station where imaginations flourish BIG TIME.

If kiddos want to forgo the water, or ixnay the sand, they can. Or, they can do the traditional sand and water meet-up in the middle, with the bubbler switched to ON for party-style fun.

There are also flat basins for bubble-making liquid, and a few bubble wands for manual bubble-blowing excitement.
