How Does a Baster Work?

Turkey basters - how do they work?
 We've used eye droppers a lot at the art table
and it's a challenge for most of the children.
This week I put turkey basters in the water table expecting them to be a challenge too.
I was impressed how much easier they seemed to be able to work the basters
compared to eye droppers.
Is it because they are that much bigger and they can use their whole hand?
The parents were wonderful modeling how the baster works and sitting back and letting their child try over and over again.

Here's a photo study of concentration.
After a week of using the baster we will use eye droppers again soon.
