20 Activities Using Water: Kid's Co-op

My kids LOVE playing with water.  And I love that it's nontoxic, entertaining, and free!  The last two Kid's Co-op link parties were full of fun and educational ways to use water:

These clever moms have used water and a few other simple materials to help their kids create beautiful art.
Tissue paper water art at Blog Me Mom
Creating colorful icicles at Housing a Forest
Gelatine suncatchers at Triple T Mum
Painting with ice cubes at Princesses, Pies, & Preschool Pizzazz

These posts are great examples of how fun and learning can take place without anything fancy.

Ice cube color mixing at Moms Have Questions Too
Water dropping at Tutus and Tea Parties
Musical Maths at Laughing Kids Learn
Absorption and color mixing at The Boy and Me (no image)

I love these ideas for educational ways to have fun with water.

And here are some of our favorite activities with water playing the starring role:

Ice letter hunt
Disappearing letters

I Spy snow globes
Snow spray paint
Making bath time more fun
Cloud experiment

I've pinned these to the Kid's Co-op Pinterest Board (and you can find a featured button on my buttons page if you'd like one.)
