Mini Maths
Introduce a flask and a mug that are both empty and a jug that is full of water.  Ask your child to predict which they think will hold more? How can we find out? First fill the mug with water- do we all agree it is full? Now we will use the water from the mug to fill the flask to see if there is not enough to fill it or if it spills over the top. Show how the mug does not fill the flask- which one holds more? Ask what will happen if we fill the flask and tip it into the mug? Demonstrate how the mug overflows.  Give your child the opportunity to explore more containers. Which holds most/ least?
