Waterfall Pouring

You don’t have to go for a long hike to reach this waterfall—you’ll make your own at home!

Toolkit Materials:

Other Materials:

Nature objects; small toys or balls

Grown-Ups

For this activity, you’ll use the same set-up as the pouring station from Water at Home. This time, add small toys like blocks, balls, and animal figurines. Encourage your camper to add nature objects they find around home, too.

Kids

Make your own waterfalls by pouring water from different heights. Let it splash down on your animals, or send them over the falls. If you’re outside, add dirt, mud, or rocks to your waterfalls.
