Turkey Baster Water Transfer

What a fun activity for little hands to work with (and to develop motor skills)! I got out two bowls, one empty and one about half full of water. B transferred water from one bowl to the other with this turkey baster.

I bought the baster specifically for this activity and it was well worth the money ($2). I actually ended up cutting this activity short when I noticed B was “experimenting” with how far he could squirt the water across the table. =)

You could also transfer water with an eye dropper, medicine syringe, sponges, or sponges in a garlic press. Any other ideas? Leave them in the comments section for all of us. This is the perfect activity to use while cooking dinner!

  1. Great idea! It’s so simple, but really keeps the kiddos entertained and busy during dinner prep. I love it!

  2. What a fun idea!

  3. The boys would love this project. I am always trying to find activities to keep them busy while I prepare dinner. I usually avoid water because I can’t figure out how to let them both do it w/o flooding my kitchen.

  4. Matthew would love this. I’ve seen this before on some Montessori blogs and always have meant to try it with him. You are right – it would be perfect for when I’m trying to get dinner ready. I’m putting it on my list to do next week. Thanks for the inspiration!
