Today, we are starting our Water Activity Series. I only wished, I had introduced it to Adrian few months earlier 🙂 While water activities were mainly confined to bath times, I saw how much he enjoyed them! What can be more fun for a toddler than water play in a controlled and safe environment? Also, he can do all of these activities independently, which is great for building concentration, and is convenient for me, as I am able to catch up on some kitchen chores while glancing at him.
This activity is very simple – all you need is an apron, a tray with a sponge and two bowls (one filled with water). The child uses the sponge to transfer the water from bowl to bowl, emptying it completely.

The Cycle of the Activity is completed, or so I thought …
After finishing the activity, Adrian decides to make his own activity – he would soak the sponge in the bowl, then press it firmly down on a tray to release water, and then he would dry the tray with the sponge. It was a lot of fun indeed!
