As you may have noticed, I love activities with easy materials, and it doesn't get much easier than water! So water is featured in a lot of our activities...and here is another way to play with it!
I set out two containers for S, one about 1/3 full of water and one that was empty. I handed her a spoon and challenged her to move the water from the full container to the empty container as carefully as she could (depending on the age/skill of your child, you may want to lay a towel out underneath the containers to soak any spills).
Once she'd done that, I challenged her to move it back to the other container using a paper towel.
After that, I had her do the same with a syringe (we used one from X's baby Tylenol).
A syringe is a bit complicated to work, so if you have a younger child, you may want to omit this tool or step in to help them use it.
And finally I had her pour using a very small container.
S loves stuff like this and it's super easy and fast to set up. You could also use a sponge, a washcloth, an eyedropper, a ladel...the possibilities go on and on and on...

All activities here are activities I feel are safe for my own children. As your child's parents/guardians, you will need to decide what you feel is safe for your family. I always encourage contacting your child's pediatrician for guidance if you are not sure about the safety/age appropriateness of an activity. All activities on this blog are intended to be performed with adult supervision. Appropriate and reasonable caution should be used when activities call for the use of materials that could potentially be harmful, such as scissors, or items that could present a choking risk (small items), or a drowning risk (water activities), and with introducing a new food/ingredient to a child (allergies). Observe caution and safety at all times. The author and blog disclaim liability for any damage, mishap, or injury that may occur from engaging in any of these activities on this blog.
