Water is tactile. Young children learn best by touching and playing with toys and materials. With a toy like this simple water tower set, a child can investigate the properties of water with no preconceived knowledge.
Young children are naturally drawn to water because of its appealing physical properties and a child’s innate curiosity about cause and effect, warm and cool, floating and sinking. Water play is an early science lesson disguised as play and fun.
Children continue to increase their vocabulary with your support. They can’t use words until they understand the meaning. It's not necessary to restrict language to simple words. In fact, you can support language learning by using terms like buoy, tug boat, marine boat, life preserver, and harbor.
Handing and manipulating toys, squeezing water through toys, moving them in and out of the cage are all forms of sensory play which help eye-hand coordination while developing fine motor skills in preparation for hand and finger control needed for writing.
