Water Pouring Station
Time to get wet!
You can set up this activity many different ways—all you need are some cups filled with water and some empty cups (or bowls). If you have a large plastic bin handy, like a storage container, you can put all the cups inside the larger bin to contain everything (this also allows your campers to reuse the water). Or lay some towels down on the kitchen floor, use the bathtub, or set the whole thing up outside. For extra (and optional) color-mixing fun, add a few drops of food coloring.
Pour, pour, and pour some more!
