Tidepool Waterplay Exhibit


Nestled in TOTopia, children will explore sensory items and splash around at the shallow water area shaped like a tide pool. Feel the water on your hands and arms or float a sea star! Nearby, use your fingers dipped in water to paint pictures on slate. Watch as they slowly fade away before your eyes and then start a new one! The Tide Pool provides for safe water play experiences just right for toddlers and infants. Water play is important in early childhood development as it provides opportunities for children to experiment with math and science concepts, strengthen their physical skills, and their social and emotional skills, and enhance language development.
