What You Will Need
Different shapes of containers
Let children explore and discover the world through water while having loads of fun!
Gather the materials.
Use small pitchers for pouring and measuring. Talk about the meaning of full and empty.
Fill a variety of bottles with water. Talk about which has more, which has less.
Fill one container with soap bubbles and another container with water. Talk about heavy and light.
Float a plastic container in the water. Start adding rubber animals. Count the number of animals your child can put into the “boat” before it sinks.
