Funnel and Fill

Work with your child to transfer water from bottle to bottle in this fun activity.

Set out an array of small funnels, cups, and plastic bottles and work together to transfer the water from one bottle to another.


  • Pretend you are both making chocolate milk, medicine for a sick doll, or bottles of soda.

  • Have a pretend tea party together.
  • Mix batches of colored water using food coloring.
