This is another fun sensory activity for children of all ages. It can also be used by older children to learn about simple volume.
You will need:
- Empty water bottles
- Food colourings
Pour varying levels of water in to the bottles, so for example one it full, empty, half full etc, then add a few drops of food colouring to the water, and glue on the lid. The children will enjoy shaking these and admiring the colour and movement.
This activity can also be used to help children learn colours and also simple volume. Children can begin to recognise and use mathematical language such as, full, empty, half full. They can also begin ordering the bottles by the water level.
