11th May – Water Saving Week starts

Go round the house and identify all of the ways you use water in your house.


Try using Scottish Water’s online calculator to work out how much water you actually use in total.

The Scottish Water website has a section especially for children to teach them about water and also has games to play. https://www.scottishwater.co.uk/help-and-resources/education

Turn on a tap in the house then turn it off but not fully, leave it to drip very, very slowly. Get a timer and see how much water is collected from the dripping tap in a glass or mug in one minute. If you had a dripping tap for one full day it would waste 1440 times that amount of water!!! Make a sign to put beside your taps to remind everyone to switch them off properly.

Make your own rain gauge and collect rainfall. Reuse rain to water plants. Join in with Sean Batty – STV Weather Mini Meteorologist Challenge for children.  @SeanBattySTV   #MiniMetTeam
