Water Poem

Allow children to return over and over again to experiment with how water flows through different structures. They love watching water trickle and cascade into various vessels and containers – listening to the splashing sounds. Fill, pour, and transport water using large receptacles such as these lovely colourful giant teapots, trays, scoops, funnels, channels, buckets and jugs. Water play is a lovely way to encourage investigative skills.
