Animal Activities

Water Watch

There are three things our favorite animals need to survive -- shelter, food, and water. Try this water watch activity and observe animals drinking from bowls you set out.

We can't always provide shelter; moms and dads don't always feel good about inviting sparrows inside for a good night's sleep. Food can be iffy. Water, though, is a universal need, and it's one thing animals need that we can almost always supply.

What You'll Need:

Old buckets, pie pans or bowls


Set out old bowls or pie pans of water wherever you think an animal might want to drink. Then make sure they are full -- check them every day.

Your creature pals will thank you every time they wet their whistles.
