Sugars Cubes are great for exploring science concepts Absorption and Dissolving using coloured water. Children will have fun playing and experimenting with the coloured water and the effects this has on sugar cubes.
ANOTHER GAME TO PLAY WITH THE HERD- Ball Toss. Would also make a great "rainy day" activity. You could even find tubs or buckets of varying sizes (like nesting bins) for more of a challenge for the older kids (Think Skee-ball).
