Water activities

L has been enjoying doing water activities outdoors. 
First I set her up with a sponge and two bowls.  She soaked up the water from the left hand bowl and squeezed it into the right hand bowl until she was done.  She looked at me like "too easy Mom!" so I then gave her this sieve and we put some twigs and flowers into the bowl for her to remove. 

Once she'd done that a few times we moved on to making bubbles with an old hand held beater.
Oh the concentration!!

The best water activity of all was helping to wash the dog! Granny also got very wet in the process!
The next day L asked for more water activities so she started with dropping single drops of water into her plastic fish.
I then colored these dots on a folded paper towel.  Some of them have two colors together so they blend to make a new color when wet.  She really enjoyed this and when she was finished I gave her a blank paper towel and a red, yellow, and blue marker to experiment with.

Oooh! I especially like the color blending! These are also great activities for us right now...our heat index is over 110 right now and this is a wonderful outdoor activity to get us out of the house!
