3 Rainy Day Activities: Discovery Cont

By Linsey Knerl

Sink or Float?

Best done during a younger child’s bath, this can also be a fun activity for older kids who can agree not to get water everywhere!

  1. Assemble a variety of items that will NOT get ruined in water. Suggestions include small plastic toys that don’t take batteries, sports equipment, kitchen utensils, sponges, straws, loose change, and bath toys.
  2. Fill the bathtub with enough water to cover the largest items. (Note: Children should be carefully supervised around water deeper than an inch or two.) Predict whether each item will sink or float before placing it into the water. Points can be given for each correct answer.
  3. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game – wins!
