MOVING WATER – Montessori Activities
A great activity that can be done with oiled baking paper and colored water👍🏼
I have no explanation other than it’s magic 🤩. The colored water droplets glide around parchment paper perfectly! Color matching and mixing, plus some fine motor skill practice with the toothpick . Bonnie @make_it_your_own_ shared a water play activity using wax paper that triggered this idea 😍. She was right, it did not disappoint 🌈. I hope you try it out ❤️.
