Sink or Float Your Boat

Got a toy boat for in the bath? Next time your child is taking a bath, break out the boat and some other toys that fit in the boat. Encourage her to carefully put toys, one by one, into or on the boat. See if she can count how many toys will fit before the boat capsizes. Can she guess? Why does she think the boat eventually sinks?
