Tot School 31.5mo Twins – W is For Waterfall

Our last W activity.  Yes, it does use water again because my boys love to play with water.  Well they just love to be messy.  I herded the boys up to their bathroom and had them get undressed while I cut up a poll noodle and taped it to the tub wall.  At first I had the pieces at a slant so the water would pour into each other as it went down and one other tube by itself, but it was too tall for the boys to pour water into it.  While they loved the water coming out, they wanted to pour themselves.

 I reluctantly gave each boy a cup and firmly told them to keep the water in the tub.  We only had one major accident during play time.  They poured, put their hands under the water at the bottom, tried a little water and then a bunch of water, they tried their hands and even their mouths as water carriers.  They even tried pouring slow and then fast.  All of it was a fun way to learn about gravity.  They had the best time with the water falls.DSC_0555DSC_0556

 

 

 

 

 

We also had a few other items to play with.  We have a small basketball hoop, a blue funnel that’s great for fast pouring that you can see in the pictures and we have a fun water wheel of sorts.  This is where you can really see the difference in how fast you pour the water.  If your kids love water, try making your own waterfalls and enjoy all the wet fun that you’ll have.
