We have had such an excellent preschool week- mainly having fun and playing! For a while my household was off track due to our move, but we are slowly and surely getting back up and running. I often wonder if those are the most receptive moments in a child's mind, when they are learning and exploring something that they enjoy. Nothing makes me happier then seeing Harmony or Mark spark at a new adventure, whether it's a new project, or reading a book. Children amaze me. This week we have explored colors, read a million books, and have done quite a bit of arts and crafts. This has definitely been an artistic week for us, which is why I think we've enjoyed it so. Since we are learning with colors this week, I decided that this would be an excellent way to incorporate mixing primary colors into secondary colors, as well as, seeing the two different substances have a chemical reaction! Boy oh boy, did we LOVE this!
We mixed our colors first- just a drop of food coloring, per color. Then we added the baking soda, grabbed our camera, and poured in the vinegar! I think the best part was Harmony's reaction after she poured the vinegar in..
After we tried it the first time, we kept on making our mini-magic potions of color. This time, I got it on video.... yeah, I'm a dork- but it was too cute!
What science experiments have you done with your kids? I would love to hear about them.. :)
