The week of science experiments, if ever there was one. From DIY egg dye to rocket launching, we did them ALL. Our raisin experiment finally wrapped: 4 weeks to make edible raisins! Our mummies mummified and were so gross, we threw them right out! Not even pictured: baking soda volcanos, failed slime (2), elephant toothpaste, seedling growth + garden planting, tortilla making, cake baking, bike pump balloons + filling balloons with objects. The most engaging ones seemed to be (1) Nerds rope candy, for which we had to switch ingredients + times to make that work, and (2) crafting a slime recipe with off-brand glue, which didn’t work the way our usual glue does but made us try very hard to get usable slime.
Beautiful weather called us outdoors many times. We ate most meals out there daily… unless wind showed up. Our trip to Kansas for Easter proved memorable. The kids wandered outdoors constantly, from playground to slackline to playground again. The trampoline got loads of use, as did our bikes and legs. More, please!
