Learning through play – Water Play using Pipettes

We keep a whole set of pipettes in our house for all sorts of exploration and so today, we set the pipettes out and colored cups with water for Inigo to practice transferring water from one cup to another through a little drip drop.

I often needed to help him and show him how to squeeze the pipette first then set it down into the cup and let go so the water would suck up into the pipette.

It wasn’t easy for him but he’s enjoying. 

  

    Soon, he decided it was easier and fun pouring the water directly to the cups.   

 But when you want to make yourself explore – you’ll gonna love stacking the cups as well.

These are just a few of the many ways significant learning happens during an activity that seems like “just playing.”
