Where is Water?

Water, water, everywhere! Water is one of the most versatile and valuable resources on earth. This month at KidsPlay, we’ll be exploring water in all its glorious forms.

Did you ever think about how many roles water plays in our lives? We can find large amounts of water in our oceans, ponds, and beaches, or tiny amounts of it in the teardrops that fall from our eyes. Water is gentle enough to wash in, and yet powerful enough to carve through land - if you give it enough time!

Let’s marvel together this month on the wonders of water. We’ll have some wet and wonderful fun together as well!
