Nature Play Spaces - Water Features

Water play gives many opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills across age ranges. Children will increase their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through actions like pouring, squirting, stirring while learning about temperatures, substances and observation. Water can also spark energy and be calming.
