  • Give them something with water that they are allowed to play with. Get a rubbermaid tote and fill it with water and leave it outside for them to dunk their toys in or spash in. If you keep telling them they can't play in the water, they're going to keep trying ;)

  • get a small pool - so they can play in the back yard

  • I filled the sandbox (outside) with water and not sand, and that has helped with playing in water, but then again I don't have the toilet problem... just the sink.... Good Luck!

  • Give them water to play in. It will lose its charm.
