We played Sprouts.
And made slime, with variables.
Lots of variables.
We've played with slime often, but today we were taking it further (in steps) all the way to a silly putty ball. A Super Duper Bouncy Ball, actually. This was actually great fun today - so fun to squish it and make it into a blob, and then splat it against the table - things (strings) fly out and smack, it jiggles... it looks like a gelatinous alien.... :)
This one comes from our Magic School Bus A Journey Into the Human Body kit. I was reminded of this kit today because of an upcoming give-away on olm (too.). (They're both made by Young Scientist Club.) I can't wait! :)
'Course, my babes expanded and learned a couple of things that were quite different from the book's lesson...
We primed some petries.
"Mom, is there such a thing as a bottomless pit?"
"Uh... I would say no, unless you're talking about something like a black hole..."
"No, that's in space. I don't mean in space. I mean here on Earth..."
And there was computer play
and then Out!
Dog-training 102: It seems that Annabelle can be bought, after all, (she doesna listen very well-ly) and that one can sufficiently distract her from eagerly greeting passers-by as long as there are Walnuts to be found...
Good to know...
I don't know why, exactly, but truthfully, friends, I am utterly exhausted and there's nothing I want more than a curl with a book.
So I'm bowing out with a half-grunting "Goodnight, Sirrah!"
see you tomorrow.
