Chick-fil-A gives out the best kid toys. Recently we received an evaporating dish with a small booklet of corresponding experiments. Last night we only had the supplies for one, and I will gladly share it:
4 Tbls whole milk in a dish and let sit for 10 minutes
add 5 or 6 drops of food coloring in 3-4 different colors
add one drop of dish soap to the center
See what happens!
Unfortunately for us, that wasn’t much. We used skim instead of whole, and it seems the fats play a key role. This experiment didn’t take much time, so we also played Lego’s in J’s room. That child can take a mess of assorted Lego pieces and build a miniature Gungan sub. I take a mess of assorted Lego pieces and make a connected mess of assorted Lego pieces. It is fascinating for me to get a glimpse into J’s brain simply by playing with him.
I am so glad I decided to do this project.
Day 8 Stats: Science and Lego’s, 20 minutes, girls asleep, a budding engineer, a hopeless abstract artist.
