Colorful floating polka dots make the perfect spot for kids to experiment with sinking and floating. We played outside in our water table because the weather permitted (hello spring!), but you could also play inside in a large container or bath tub. Water activities are always enjoyed, you can see it all over my kid’s faces
This post is part of our Creative Preschool theme for the week. In case you missed it, other themes have included Shapes, Science Experiments, Learn About Food, Fine Motor Skills, Hair & Body, Fairy Tales, Ocean, Rain Forest, Flower & Plants and Solar System.

Polka Dot Splash
|Pin me please! 🙂|
Foam sheet circles (I found ours at the dollar store)
Water table/Large container or Bath tub
Small toys or blacks
Food coloring for water (optional)
1. Fill up the water table and have child float the polka dots on the water.
2. Give children toys or blocks to balance on top of the polka dots. Have them see how many they can get on each polka dot before they splash and sink into the water.
Use different sized polka dots so children can see how surface are affects the ability to hold things and keep it floating.
