There is a lot more to water than just what comes out of the tap.

The Chattahoochee Nature Center is hosting a day of “wet and wild” activities Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to show visitors how to have fun with water while learning more about it.

Leading off a day of “Wonderful Water” at 11 a.m. and noon is the Amazing Bubble Show.

Bo the Bubblologist will create huge bubbles, super long buboes, bubble chains and bubble squares. He’ll even put a live person inside a bubble. At 1 p.m., visitors can make their own bubbles with Bo.

Farmer Sue of ArtBarn will be making crafts with mud, fish and a little soap from noon to 2 p.m.

Bring a towel and enjoy the sprinkler that sprinkler shoots water 12 feet into the air from noon to 3 p.m.

In Water Olympics games from 1 to 3 p.m., try to float pennies, stand water above a glass rim and more.

And at 3 p.m. Miss Julia will make a splash with a Story Time that is all wet. She’ll read “Water, Water Everywhere,” “Water Dance” and “The Water Hole.”

This interactive reading romp is for the whole family.

Chattahoochee Nature Center is at 9135 Willeo Road, Roswell.

General admission is $6 for children, $10 for adults, $7 for seniors ages 65 and up and for students ages 13 to 18. Nature center members and kids age 2 and under are admitted free.
