stained by science

Some of you recently saw this photo that I posted for wordless Wednesday.

I had every intention to expound on the photo Thursday, but well, if you know me at all,
you're not the least bit surprised to see that I'm just now getting to it.


I recently found play at home mom.
a group of moms with FANTASTIC ideas on how to
teach kids through good old play.
I don't think learning through play is an entirely new concept,
but I know I struggle to come up with new creative things for the
kids to do.
Plus it's so easy to fall into today's 'norm'
of pushing 'acidemics' by bombarding your kids with flash cards and workbooks.
The women at play at home mom are just full of fun, creative ideas.

Last week, we let the kids explore, and learn about
mixing things.

It started with bowls full of colored vinegar,
and 'salt and pepper' shakers filled with baking soda.

They got to see and touch the reaction
that happened when you mix vinegar and baking soda.

After that, they went on to scoop vinegar from one bowl to the next,
and they learned all about mixing colors.
It didn't take long for them to see that mixing ALL the colors
created a pretty ugly brown.

Haakon wasn't a fan of the brown, so he found my unattended
food coloring and decided he needed to
make the vinegar a pretty color again.
unfortunately the vinegar stayed brown,
and only his feet changed colors.

We look forward to our next little science experiment
which will include corn starch and water
...... and likely more food coloring.

Well that's a neat little experiment - even if it did change his feet, it made for an interesting photo.
