Water Play

bathIn Pre-school we have been thinking about new activities and ways to enhance our water play area. We thought we’d try out a ‘bath bomb’ shaped as a robot!

The children were very excited as we discussed what they thought might happen once we put it into the water.
“I think it will walk across the water like a soldier.” Daniel said.
“It will go.” Ciara said.

As we placed the Robot into the water the children described how the water began to change colour and noticed that the predominant colour was blue. As they touched the robot they described it as “feeling all bubbly”. The children then spoke about cause and effect by noticing how the robot float and sank and then we continued this activity by using toys and finding out which ones would float and which would sink.
