Turkey Baster Water Transfer

Turkey Baster Water Transfer is a fun activity for little hands to work with and to develop motor skills!
Turkey Baster Water Transfer

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. 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
  • sponges

This is the perfect activity to use while cooking dinner!

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

    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.

    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!
