Ketchup and Mustard waterplay

Along with our dramatic play with the grill, our painting on the grill, and our ketchup and mustard squeeze painting, we enjoyed some ketchup and mustard waterplay…

The original intent of this water table was to wash and dry dishes (which they did earlier that day) but the boys wanted to squeeze the left over yellow and red paint into the table after we were done painting. Since the bottles were pretty much empty, I thought this would be a good way to help me clean them up…

The water turned bright red at first then started turning orange as the boys added the “mustard”…

Using the squeeze bottles in the water table also led to exploring the flow of liquid and the use of fine motor skills to squeeze the bottles and practice controlling the flow of water from the bottle.

The lids inevitably made their way off the squeeze bottles so the boys could fill their bottles back up and do a little pouring…

With lots of practice like this, preschoolers are well on their way to being able to control the use of glue bottle!
