Water Table

It started with corn, moved to wheat, then sand, and now....
The water table is open!  Oh, this has been a highlight over the past week!  We've been giving kids the chance to explore at the water table.  We have boats, funnels, large and small cups, eye droppers, turkey basters, and tubes.

We encourage the kids to explore capacity, objects that sink and float, and experiment with the way water moves.

If you volunteer in the classroom during our center time, I will probably ask you to supervise the water table.  The kids LOVE it but, as you can imagine, it can get a little out of hand without an extra pair of eyes. 
As the weather warms up, especially when it gets to be pool season, I would like to encourage you to break out the measuring cups and other plastic kitchen utensils for kids to experiment with!
Happy water play!


  1. This is a good idea - kids love playing with water. Be sure to make certain that the water is safe when kids are using it. Information about softened water can be found if you Click Here :)
