I’ve never met a kid who doesn’t love water play. Even the smallest bin or bucket of water will keep any toddlers happy for hours. Two very simple things – water and squeezy bottle – have been keeping #chinitoinigo busy and happy again and again.
Quick and Easy Toddler Activity
What you need:
- Small tub with 1/4 to 1/2 full of lukewarm water.
- A small squeezy bottle
- A towel to catch spills
- Washable tempera paint (optional)
Directions: I filled the small tub with clear water and gave the squeezy bottle to Inigo. Eventually, I added blue tempera paint to look like an ocean.
We also used this chance of learning new vocabulary words like empty, full, squeeze, dry, wet and squirt.
Sometimes, it is often the simplest things that engage young children the most.
