Step 1

Gather the materials.

Bring a bucket or basin of water to the sand area. Ask children what they think will happen if they add water to the sand.

Invite a child to pour it into the sand. Ask: “What happens to the sand? How does the wet sand feel? Does the wet sand look the same as the dry sand?”

Step 5
