Water Play

Q: “When I brought my daughter in for a checkup today, the nurse and I were talking about ways to keep her busy. She suggested that I let her play at the sink with measuring cups. But isn’t water play dangerous?”

A: Water play can be dangerous; the nurse probably meant that it can be fun to play at the sink with your supervision. All water time needs to be supervised.

Many young children find playing with water to be a relaxing, fascinating way to practice filling and pouring from a variety of cups or bowls.
