Let's Play: Water Gauge

This is perfect for the months when we experience a lot of rain (when do we ever not?!?)

What you need:
- Empty drinks bottle
- Scissors
- Ruler
- Pen for marking
- Things to decorate the bottle with

What you need to do:
- Cut the top of the bottle (see photo)

- Mark the sides at intervals using your ruler for accuracy (or just guess depending on serious your toddler is taking it!)

- Decorate the bottle using stickers/sparkles/glitters/whatever you like!

- Find suitable place for water gauge outside.  NB: You may need to weigh it down initially.  We had several false starts when ours blew away in the bad weather!
