Making a well
My kids love water play, and anything that involves transferring water from one container to another. After we made a pulley – see my post on making a pulley – we decided we would use it to make a well.
For this you will need –
- One pulley – see making a pulley
- Tub of water
- Craft stick
First, we built two towers (secured with a base) out of duplo – pretty high, to give our pulley a good chance to work. We then secured the pulley to the two towers using some playdough which we moulded onto the top of the bricks. Next, we cut a craft stick in half and glued it to one of the circles of the reel in the pulley. Then add the tub of water and, hey presto, you have a well (once the glue has dried)! My son loved it!
