It was a big population day at Playdate. I meant to take a picture of the vat of sauce I made with six pounds of ground beef and the five pounds of spaghetti, but just getting all those plates filled kept us rather occupied.
The kiddos love science day. So after getting settled and getting all participants in safety glasses, we started with an easy one I picked eight years ago when Missy Bugg and Antebellie were two. I've never really disallowed a child doing a science project no matter how little. Even if they don't get it at two, they will as the years go by. Anyway, into everyone's cup went raisins, then lemon lime soda. We watched as the raisins danced and talked about how that works. I was impressed with their powers of observation and ideas. Did you know you need safety glasses to watch raisins dance- pretty crazy.
After watching the dancing, we took a different spin on Gak,
|These baby boys are the ones passing out the stuff this year|
|Baby Giddy-up was not too sure about this Gak business. Now, science is his love.|
Next we made Explodanators. Vinegar and water in baggie, slip in some baking soda wrapped in tissue, seal and pitch- Kapowie!
This is elephant's toothpaste in process.
Using salt and colored water to mine ice for treasures is always a favorite.
Then story and snack, this time with a Missy Bugg reader.
|Miss Min sporting her own little Wayside dumpling.|
|Our Kate's boy has sure grown and look at those adorable curls.|
Good picture Bean Town.
I'm not sure Ms. Glitzy was quite as excited as our first experiment back in the day, but pretty close.
|Hat's off to Ol'Henry. The only one besides his sister able to lure this boy away from Mama. Ol' Henry helped him explore the wonders of the creek.|
|My Little Mermaids|
|What a geode.|
|Ooooh, what is that cool tool you have Uncle Jimi?|
|How fun, a mustard trick. That Giddy-up loves tricks.|
|Missy Bugg's lillys are in bloom.|
Our little Peony Posie left us this afternoon. Though it was only a few weeks, that squishy sweetness sure has left a mark on our hearts. I don't how to comfort my child, or my own self for that matter.
