Our recent foray into the world of science, has led to Our boys producing their own scientific experiments.
This day was all about 'chalk potions'.
They began by crushing chalk pieces into powder.
To hand they had chalk, glitter, water, limes and lemons (the skins after using the juice to make iceblocks), cuttlefish, leaves & mud.
There was much discussion, cooperation and general camaraderie.
A wonderful thing to see between these two brothers (aged 4 & 6).
I was asked to write the descriptions on bags,
so they could keep these helpful potions to hand.
I will note here.
That superhero costumes and swimming goggles were deemed necessary
- "in case of explosions".
I especially like this one:
"Plant Water - May be good, or maybe not"!
I'm not really sure of the hypothesis going in, nor the surmise coming out.
However, I know both Mr Turtle and Little Pip had a great deal of fun
and have many more plans of 'science' ahead.
