Chalk + Water
Aquariums are exciting for the multitude of water species they introduce to young children, but they are also exciting purely for the quantities of water everywhere! We have explored water in so many ways, like here and here, but this is one of our favorites.
Water does such a cool thing to chalk. It becomes softer and easier to use...perfect for little ones. I like to bring out the chalk after we do other water play, typically playing with the hose. Then we color on the newly wet concrete. So easy and yet, SO FUN! The same effect can also be achieved by offering a bowl of water alongside a bucket of chalk. Demonstrate how to dip the chalk into the water and then draw as usual.
*Try with spray bottles - draw first and then spray with water.
