Jack and Jill Fetching A Pail of Water

ages 2-5


Two bowls or buckets, a big sponge and water.

Activity Detail

Take either two bowls or buckets and a big sponge. Fill the first bucket with some water, but not all the way full. Have your child soak up the water with the sponge and then wring it out in the empty bucket. See how many times or how long it takes for them to empty the first bucket and fill the second using only the sponge.


Jennifer said:

If you have more than one child doing this you could make it into a race to see who can fill up the bowl the fastest.
