One of Emma’s favorite activities is playing with water, preferably with bubbles. It’s a great way to get her hands REALLY clean, and I believe that kids can learn a lot by pouring water in and out of containers. It can make a mess, but nothing that some towels on the floor and a change of clothing won’t fix. I contain the mess by limiting the amount of water.
