Brick bridges and water

Why not build some brick bridges and sail some boats under them?

Bridge and water
What do I need?
  1. Building bricks.
  2. Tin foil.
  3. Toy Boat.
How do I set up the activity?

If you can it is recommended that you do this activity outdoors. Otherwise have some towels handy for any spills. Also, if you have a tuff spot tray this activity could also be done in this.

  1. Then use tin foil to create a ‘river’. Fold the sides up on the tin foil to make a ‘container’.
  2. Stack the bricks together to make a bridge (see picture) over the ‘river’. If you have enough bricks why not make a couple of bridges. You could use small or larger bricks depending on the age of your child and what resources you have available.
  3. Fill the river with water and add a toy boat.
Extension Activity

Why not use more bricks to build a village around the bridges and river? Could you add any more toys to the river?


Please make sure that the activity is supervised at all times. Only use materials that are age appropriate for those participating in the craft or activity. Also, make sure you avoid anything that may cause an issue with regards to allergies.
