Pouring is one of children’s favourite activity. According to website of Teach Preschool, pouring help tremendously with critical thinking skill. As children pour they have to think about how fast to pour, how long to pour, how far to turn the spout, when it is time to stop pouring which helps with mathematical and scientific thinking. (https://teachpreschool.org/2014/08/02/pouring-in-preschool-and-why-we-do-it/).
To do the activity, prepare a plastic pitcher filled with water and cups. Let the children play as they will surely enjoy pouring back and forth from the pitcher to the cup. Add some food colouring into the water for added fun!
