Today’s Brain Play Activity
Bucket and Brush

Kids love playing with water. Water helps kids learn about science and math, and is a quick way to cool off on a hot day. Find a paintbrush or kitchen sponge. Get something that holds a lot of water (a bucket, mixing bowl, saucepan.) Pick an outdoor surface for your child to paint with the water. Wood works best, like an outside door or table.
