What is the perfect solution to a hot summer day? Water! Head outside and play. I’m joining JDaniel4′s Mom for a Playing Outside Blog Hop.  This month our theme is water! My son, Aiden (age 2.5), loves water play – in the bathtub, in the sink, in a bucket on the floor, and especially outside. Here’s a fun and simple water play activity we enjoyed.

Water Play: Fun with Funnels


  • buckets/containers of water
  • measuring cups
  • funnels
  • bottles or other narrow mouth containers

How to Play:

Go outside, set out materials, and watch as your children have fun. Be prepared to supply more water upon request.

Practicing using funnels and measuring cups are great skills for the future.


When Aiden emptied all of the water from his buckets, he decided to stack them up. Another fun idea – with or without water!
