Water sounds

Take a small group of children outside and fill a bowl or bucket with water. Explore the different sounds they can make with water by swirling it round with their fingers, smacking it with the flat palm of their hands, and moving it from side to side with the edge of their hands. Repeat these actions more slowly or more quickly. Listen carefully to the different sounds they make and invite the children to replicate these sounds with their voices as they move the water.
