Build fountains, float boats and explore the swirling, whirling ways of water!
Water is intrinsically fascinating – the ultimate “loose part.” Whether splashing in puddles and bathtubs, floating sticks in rivers, or building fountains at the Children’s Museum, water naturally invites open-ended play and exploration. Water play is a mesmerizing sensory experience that fosters creativity, stimulates curiosity and promotes problem solving for all ages and abilities. It offers children endless possibilities to engage with science – to notice, question, experiment and develop a sense of wonder about the world around them. Water Ways motivates kids – and grown-ups – to think, ‘What does water do?’ and ‘What can I do with water?’ by immersing visitors in engaging, interactive new water play.
Splash, explore, discover and investigate water and its properties in different forms:
