Sensory Sprouts: Weather Boot

Experiment with how different materials react to water. This was inspired from Science Sparks.


·        Paper Boot

·         Pipette

·         Assortment of Materials

·         Tape

·         Glue


·         Have your child tape or glue the different materials to the paper boot. If you are using glue, try not to drench the materials with glue.

·         Once all materials are taped/glued to the boot, give your child a bowl of water and the pipette. Have your child dribble water on each section of material.

·         Observe how the different materials react to water. Discuss why the material might react the way it does to the water.
