I challenged my newsletter subscribers to doing a water activity last week.
I set out two large bowls of water [not very full at all] with measuring cups, teaspoons [and the like] as well as a baby bottle.
It was a simple water transfer activity for the boys to be occupied with.
The added element of adding the baby bottle gave the activity some measuring fun!
It wasn’t very accurate [not at all…] but Henry began to understand the concept of ‘How many cups does it take to fill to 4 oz?” [told you, not very accurate].
We did this indoors, so I set out a shower curtain on the floor. But that barely contained the mess, so if you can take it outside, I’d recommend doing that! The boys poured a lot of water back and forth, with a lot of spills on the way… it stayed mostly on the shower curtain, but some strayed a little… and I needed a towel to soak up what was on the curtain too. As part of a rule I have, the boys helped with soaking up their mess… though they weren’t entirely pleased with me about it this time…
Make summer fun & easier on yourself:
There are several water activities included in the Camp Mom: Summer Activities Pack that will be officially released tomorrow, May 15th! Until then, you can pre-order it now and get a 15% discount with ‘earlybird’.
