Water Transfer and Play


Provide a rich sensory and fine motor experience by transferring water transfer! 


A tray or plastic plate, Two bowls, food coloring (optional), water, a turkey baster or eye dropper, and a sponge.


  • You can model this first if you like by squeezing the baster and showing your child how you transfer the water to the empty bowl. It can be helpful to model spilling a little water on the tray, that way you can show them how you can use the sponge to clean up the water. 
  • When you’re done you can invite your child to try!


Don’t have an eye dropper or baster? Place objects inside one of the bowls to have your child transfer from one bowl to the other using a slotted spoon. Feel free to take this outside on a hot day!
