Like most kids Lil Muallimah LOVES water. Mashallah! To enhance her hand muscles and quench her desire to play with water I have introduced this activity.
I placed two bowls in a tray one holding 1/4 cup of water. Lil Muallimah has to soak the sponge in bowl one take it out and squeeze the water into the other bowl by squishing the sponge. To see the sponge swell up in the first soak is so exciting :).
When all the water is transferred the sponging and squishing is repeated to get all the water back into the first bowl.
