All I had to do was show the children how to set it up. All I said was "Slow" so that the water would stay in the bin. I spent $4.00 at Target dollar spot. The children poured and poured. I had to resupply our water source several times. Here are some pictures. Now I am setting up nametags for children to use to show that they are waiting to work with this and hopefully they will learn to do this with other works. I Love It!!!
