Monday we taught the littles all about rain clouds and how storms are formed. We used dollar store shaving cream, a clear container filled with clear water and a small bowl filled with water I dyed blue which was our "rain".
Tuesday day 2: I bought a kit at Joann's to make a Tin Can robot. This was super cool! It did however take quite a bit of time and the littles lost interest in the building portion fairly quick. But once it was built they loved it!!
Day 3: we made flubber!! The recipe was pretty simple. All you need is:
2 bottles of Elmers Glue (equaling 1 cup)
1 cup of cold water
Food coloringMix those together in 1 bowl. Then in a second bowl add:
1 TBS of Borax Laundry Detergent
3/4 cup of warm water
Stir the contents of bowl 2 until the Borax is dissolved and then dump that into bowl 1. Mix until it's a rubber consistency.
**Note** the glue I had on hand was not Elmer and I'm not sure but I think that may have caused it to be a little too sticky? Or I should have stired it longer. It was still fun either way! :)
Day 5: we skipped thursday because one of my sons had a day long birthday party to attend. On friday we did this cool water experiment. We had 3 cups. 2 were filled halfway with either yellow dye water or blue dyed water. The middle cup was empty. We added a paper towel from the blue cup up and into the middle empty cup & did the same with the yellow. By the end of the day the 2 have combined into the middle cup to make green water!! Honestly this one took a long time to work but it was so worth the wait!!
