What to do:
- On a warm day, allow children to use wet sponges to see how far they can toss the sponges. A plastic container of some sort can be the target. Children can see how many sponges they can get into the container. Or, children can compare the distance they can toss different sizes of wet sponges.
- Children can squeeze out most of the water and see how that affects how far the sponges go when tossed.
- To prevent drowning accidents, young children must be supervised around water at all times. An adult needs to be no more than an arm’s length away.
