This activity requires children to pump water while they organize the hose for the water to come out. Children can work together to make the pump work or can problem-solve how to make it work on their own. The pumping motion takes strength and balance to complete. It’s a great activity that provides both proprioceptive and vestibular skills where balance and movement are coordinated.
