If your preschool is running a summer season, mix things up a little bit by incorporating some outdoor water fun. Schedule a weekly water day so that your students can get wet and explore all the fun that water has to offer. Here are a few summer water day activities that use sponges that you can do with your preschool class on their water day. #1: Sponge Foot Pass For this activity you will need a couple of large sponges. Have your students lay down on their backs head to toe with one another in a line with three of four other students. Then, give the student at the front of the line a sponge filled with water.

You will need to have your students sit in a circle. Explain to them that they are supposed to pass the sponge around the circle until the music stops. When the music stops, whoever has the sponge gets to squeeze all the water that is left in it on top of their head. They also are in charge of refilling the sponge with water and starting the game again. #4: Sponge Tag The typical rules of tag apply, expect this time the person who is "It" gets to run around with a wet sponge. When they tag another student or squeeze the sponge on to another student, that student then becomes "It" and gets to refill the sponge and start the game again. #5: Sponge Water Table Take your sensory table outside and fill it up with water. Provide your students with a variety of different sized sponges and containers. Let your students explore how sponges work and have fun getting each other wet and filling up their containers with water from the sponges. Be sure to incorporate water play into your preschool schedule this summer. Try out one or all of the fun sponge themed water activities with your students on your next water
