2. Encourage Sanitary Habits
If your children are not potty trained, be sure to pack swim diapers. Regular diapers won’t be much good once they get soaked and it’s not sanitary to allow a young child who isn’t potty trained to roam free in the wading pool. Swim diapers are designed to contain any contents and they don’t swell like normal diapers.
For children who are potty trained, remind them that having an accident at the splash pad is frowned upon. Before you let them go play, take them to the washroom. If you’re spending the afternoon at the splash pad, frequent pee breaks throughout your stay will keep the water clean and the kids happy.
