Playing with water and splashing around is good for tamariki, and it doesn’t just have to be at bathtime. Set up the sprinkler and run through it or make it into a fun game.
Why do it?
- Playing with water provides multiple opportunities for open-ended play.
- It can promote language, cognitive and sensory activities.
- Water play can be calming, exciting or require focus and concentration.
- It also supports hand–eye coordination.
