Thomas had a blast yesterday experimenting with the texture of just plain old corn starch and water! We picked up this book, Science Crafts for Kids: 50 Fantastic Things to Invent & Create (amazon affiliate link), from the library on our last visit. It has some really cool and fun stuff in it; but we only had the ingredients and items needed for this one experiment. I have no idea where the word oobleck came from . . . it’s what the book called this one . . .
Volcano eruptions, Tinkertoys, playing at the park and family reading night . . .
This was GREAT fun! Thomas received this, Star Wars Science – Mustafar Volcano Lab, (amazon affiliate link) as a birthday gift back in November and we just now had all the “ingredients” to conduct our volcano eruption experiments!
Team member T and L both got a set of Tinkertoys from Santa. Lillian got the Tinkertoy Classic Construction:Girls Pink 200 Pc Tinker Toy (amazon affiliate link) and Thomas got the Classic set to avoid getting them mixed up. They are absolutely loving them. Literally hours are spent building and creating with these great toys that encourage use of the imagination.
Went to the park for about an hour and played, played, played. Then home for dinner and reading night!
