Depending on the time of year or our theme, we like to add these small creatures to explore.
Fill the water bin with some soapy warm water, add Legos, and their little fingers do the rest.
We added golf balls as a lesson on what could and could not make it through the funnel hole.
They are perfect for scooping water and fit nicely in little kids’ hands.
Add small balls for additional fun.
