Build a Boat
To make the boats, you need to use modeling clay (plasticine). Earthen clay or play dough will not work in water because it will dissolve and make a mess. Use a sensory table with water or fill small tubs or plastic shoeboxes with water.
Give each child a ball of clay and have them drop it into the water to see if it floats or sinks. Next, have them form a boat from the clay and try to make a boat that will float. Some children may need help. After they have a boat that floats, let them try putting mini plastic animal toys (such as bear counters) in the boat to see how many the boat will hold without sinking.
Coffee Filter Rainbow
Cut coffee filters in half so that you have semi-circles.
Have children decorate half of a coffee filter with washable markers. Make sure the markers are washable or water-based so the colors will “bleed” or spread when water is added.
Place small cups of water around the table for children to share and give each child an eye dropper. Have children use the dropper to drop “rain” over the coffee filter, and watch the colors blend together to make beautiful rainbows. Some children get carried away with the water drops, so make sure children don’t wash away all of their color with water.
