What Weighs More?

Take a clothes hanger, and suspend two identically-sized buckets (like small beach buckets) from each end using two equally long pieces of string. Hang it or hold it, and ask your child to put two different objects in each bucket to test his guess about which is heavier. Try two different toys, dry pasta or beans, or whatever you can think of.
