Basic Water Activity: Added Measuring Tools

Share:

I challenged my newsletter subscribers to doing a water activity last week.

Yesterday, I shared the blowing water bubbles that was a huge hit, and so simple to set up [um, just a cup of water and a straw]… today is another basic water activity that we did.

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…
