Scooping Water PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.
Children’s first learning experiences with water usually include all kinds of pouring.
What You Need:
- Container of water
- Shallow pan
- Plastic or paper cup
- Measuring spoons
What To Do:
- Place an empty cup on top of the shallow pan.
- Use a measuring spoon to scoop water into the cup. You can place your hand over the child’s hand and scoop the water together.
- It’s fine if your child just enjoys splashing the water with the spoon or his hand. Use this opportunity to talk about what he is doing and encourage this sensory activity.
- As your child gets older, you can incorporate tools such as funnels and activities such as counting how many spoonfuls of water it takes to fill the cup.
Safety Alert: Supervise your child closely. Babies can drown in just a few inches of water, so never take your eyes off him when playing with water.
