Today...our activities included math with money, minecraft, making crafts and gifts for a friend, sewing, drawing, cooking, watching a few documentaries on Animal Planet - including one on Anacondas and one on the Chimp expert Jane Goodall. We also watched one on puppy development in different breeds.
Sam used one of the 'Doctor Dreadful' kits he was given for his birthday - he made sour gummy organs and then injected them with 'gut goo'...he had a fantastic time making a real mess by mixing up ingredients, freezing them, and then being able to eat them!!!
Abby and I are growing crystals on snowflakes - we made snowflake shapes out of pipe cleaners, and then soaked them in a Borax mixture - we will leave them over night but they are already well covered in pretty, sparkly crystals.
Sam and I then made some hearts and a letter S, and soaked them in pink food dye - for Valentines day :)
While the Borax was out, we also made some gak or slime.....this is a polymer and always fun to do - watching it change from a liquid to a solid! I need to get some cornstarch so we can make bouncy balls!!
Sam also set up the little city he was given - its very cool and has noises for the emergency vehicles etc - so he was engrossed in that for a long time!
Then he came and joined me at the table while I was working and he had a go with Polymer Clay and a mould:
