Dollar Store Water Play

Hi! It's Scott from Brick by Brick. I love to repurpose materials—use materials in ways different from their intended purpose. Repurposing, reusing, and recycling are important for the world and are great ways to have fun resources for little or no cost.

One of my favorite places to shop is the dollar store. A few weeks ago we enjoyed water play. Everything that we used in the water is from the dollar store...or the dollar shelves at Target (also a favorite shopping spot!).

Our favorite new addition - the colander. It makes rain when you dip it into the water! Funnels, measuring cups, and plastic storage containers complete our water play tools.

You could also get these items from the kitchen area of a thrift store or a bargain store. Kids love anything that they can use to scoop and pour water.

(And add words or pictures under the water play container--if it's transparent or translucent--so kids can talk about those things, too. Make use of every opportunity!)

What are your favorite things to use with water?

  1. LOVE water play and the pouring and experiences with floating/not floating are so great for children. They never get tired of it, indoors or out! Good inspiration. Carolyn
