Recent Science Experiments

Boogs loves to make mixtures and "brews". So some days I just open the pantry and cabinets and let him go wild. His favorite mixture is food coloring, baking soda, and vinegar. It never gets old to see a "volcano explosion". It makes a big mess but Boogs is very good about keeping it on his art mat and cleaning up afterwards.

We grew salt crystals this week. We have been checking our string each day to see the growth. Boogs hopes to have the entire pencil covered with crystals before we clean up this experiment.

Another little experiment was to see if we could poke skewers through a sandwich baggie without having any leaks. It worked. Then we pulled them out slowly to watch the water stream out. You can put a skewer through a sandwich baggie without leaks, but not through a water balloon without leaks.

  1. Those are some cool experiments! I may have to steal a couple of those ideas.
