What you need:
- Plastic bowl or tire tube lined with plastic.
- Items that might sink, or float.
Step 1 - First things first
Fill a large plastic bowl or tire tube lined with plastic
Step 2 - Sail a boat made out of paper
Or a coconut shell for pirate fun
Step 3 - Find things that sink and that float
This is a little science experiment
Step 4 - Use a feather, cork, stone, acorn, leaf, rubber ball.
And anything else your child finds
Step 5 - Will it sink or will it float?
Ask before he or she drops the item in the water to see what they think
Step 6 - Don't forget to ask them why
Ask them why it sinks and why it floats
