Yesterday was many things.
Messy, sparkly, soapy, slippery, sticky....
We checked on our uv beads again. Remember a few months (under the Winter sun) when they barely changed color?
This time they changed to super-bright in less than five seconds!
We made a few crystal concoctions...
We experimented with borax in this one instead of washing soda, and stalagtites and stalagmites will not form. (Just the usual borax crystals.) Next time with washing soda.
We've never done the bluing crystal garden before. Strange how they are foamy and very, very cold.
Somehow, I don't think this exactly what is supposed to happen. (that they grow on the outer rim of the pot instead of the brick.) On the plus side, they start forming pretty quickly - a few hours.
Our other ones from a few weeks ago never really did anything great.They're pretty and sparkly, but didn't really grow.
I'm not sure why. Maybe we'll try once more.
Trev did lots of dinosaur studying
and we played outside in the sun
and tarand experimented to see if we put a bit of water and bubbles on the tramp if we could jump to make bubbles
and watched the same Thomas song over and over again
and then of course got out the tracks
I'm not sure what today holds.
It's already warm and inviting and s'posed to improve from here, so....
