My little guys love to play with water. So when I saw an idea on another blog for an educational water experience, I decided to try it. My three-year old loved it.
What is floating? What type of objects float? Why do they float? What is the opposite of floating?
We gathered some random items around the kitchen and tested them in a large plastic bin. Silverware didn’t float. Neither did coins. Lids for plastic containers floated, but if they got filled with water, they sank.
We also tried to make a (pretend) hot-air balloon following some instructions in a book, but it didn’t work out too well. My three year old kept saying he wanted to make a ‘real’ hot air balloon and insisted all the materials we would need would be Daddy’s tools!
