Autumn Sink or Float
I love introducing simple science concepts and we have so many items from our autumn sensory bins lying around at the moment that I created a simple autumn themed sink or float experiment. I filled the tray with warm water given that it is October but it was still great to be able to be outside still.
The children completely enjoyed taking it in turns to guess and then test whether the items they chose sunk or floated on the water.
Once this part was over the children, rather predictably, took this opportunity for some water play. They enjoyed moving all of the items around in the water and then finally seeing which ones made the biggest splash. This ended in some pretty happy but rather wet children!
