Water play refers to any play that involves the use of water. Often accompanied by the use of tools like buckets, containers and toys that allow children to splash, scoop and pour water with other materials.
Through pouring, measuring, squirting, scrubbing, stirring and squeezing during water play, children develop important fine and gross motor skills like hand-eye coordination and physical strength whilst also furthering sensory exploration.
Water play activities are great for children because it provides children an opportunity tio develop cognitive functioning, understanding of math and science concepts, motor skills, social skills and even language through play.
