We just arranged the bowls and poured ice around it, We were under a pavilion and the food stayed cold all afternoon! Clean up is easy. Remove the bowls and dump the ice.
Save the pools for future parties/reunions! Unless the kids claim them :)
Everyone said "Wow, who thought of this?" Sure helped put a lot of food in a small area.

Update: We have had extreme heat the last week, and I wanted to show how much my tomatoes, green peppers, and herbs have grown and that using a plastic pool really does work for those with limited backyard space. I just took these pictures.
I am going to pie it off and start more than just two things I am seeing how good this works.

This tip needs a small to medium child's wading pool, either new or used. You can reuse the pool as a leaf or garden disposing vehicle. It can carry a multitude of garden or lawn refuse and will not leave wheel marks on your lawn. It is so easy to pull toward that compost area and is easily dumped.
Drill two holes the diameter size of a piece of rope on the side rim of the pool. I use 10 to 12 feet of nylon rope as it is strong as a pulling handle and a washer on either side of the inserted rope hole to keep plastic strong. Knot the rope on the inside of the pool to provide a pulling handle. Drill a few small holes in pool for drainage if you leave the pool outside.
A great useful idea to recycle a plastic wading pool.
