I went out and bought a small Rubbermaid storage bin for my two. It's small enough that I can lift it and carry it around. I usually put a bit of lukewarm water in it (just enough to cover the bottom) and let them walk around in that. That way I don't have to deal with the unsanitary consequences of using the kitchen/bathroom sink. Their little "bath tub" is easy to clean because all I do is dump the water out (usually over the back deck... sorry downstairs neighbors! lol) and then wipe it down with Clorox wipes (bleach-free) and fresh water. Annabelle likes to stick her face in the water, too, so this way I don't have to worry about her accidentally inhaling some.
