Another water activity for my toddler (going on 21 months now). I know some parents might cringe at the thought of giving their toddler a water activity, but I find water to be the least messiest. It wipes up easily, even cleans as it spills and clothes only need to be changed but don't get stained or dirty. Of course, this can always be done outside too.
The materials needed are shown, with the exception of an apron and a towel for under feet. The jug was prepared by cutting a large hole in the side of the jug and cutting off the top.
I filled the jug to almost the bottom of the side hole and demonstrated using the funnel by scooping water out from the bottom of the jug and pouring into the funnel at the top.
My daughter also experimented with removing the funnel, which worked just as well.
