Give your child a clean plastic bottle to play with in the tub. How many different things can they do with it? Push it under the water? Fill it with water? Float it like a boat? As they try something new ask them, “What do you think will happen?”
See what your child is learning
Your child likes to make things happen. And it’s even more fun when you watch and share their pleasure by having them guess what will happen as they discover more about their world and their impact on how things work. When they play this way, they’re thinking like a scientist.
