Water Play

Water play helps children better understand critical science concepts such as: density, volume, sinking, floating, and absorption.

Bring It Home

  • Encourage water play at home (with supervision, of course) by filling a big plastic storage bin, the kitchen sink or bathtub with water and giving your child a few unbreakable kitchen tools such as measuring cups, a colander or whisk.
  • Play with different colored ice: freeze food-colored water and then put the ice cubes in water and allow your child to see the color mixing process.
  • Create a backyard water wall: find instructions here.
