Funnels

You might be surprised by how much use you can get out of an ordinary plastic funnel. It’s the perfect tool to use when you’re trying to fill things for science experiments like a Balloon Terrarium and it’s a great tool to teach younger kids the concepts of empty and full.

Not to mention, it's a great item to use to practice fine motor skills. Plus,if you have a couple of them, you can help your child make his own stethoscope!
