Here in Michigan it rained all of April. ALL of April. In fact I think there were only 2 or 3 days where it was sunny. Mainly just wet and windy. A cold, cold drafty lake wind. Brrr. In honor of it being so wet and cold and feeling like winter was never going to… Continue reading Water Cycle Week! (with states of matter)
The rest of the experiments for crystal week dealt with over saturation. Please note what I mentioned before, frugality and over saturation do not combine. By frugality, I mean ridiculously frugal, these ingredients are not expensive, Epsom salt, sugar? Live a little, please! What is done is done though, for now, one day in the… Continue reading Crystal Week: Part 2!!
Crystal Week. Such promise, such hope, such beauty. The idea for crystal week all got started back when the snug saw a Dora the Explorer Crystal kit.

This past week was a ton of fun! Our theme was musical instruments, and we kept finding more and more information and sources for different musical instruments. This was the first time I was bummed about doing a theme for only a week. We could have kept it going, but it was getting loud in… Continue reading Musical Instruments Week!
It was my husband’s birthday this week, he really likes reptiles, so it was just appropriate to do our first theme on reptiles and amphibians. Two birds with one stone, we could have a theme he really likes, use our craft and food items to help celebrate without too much extra work. Thoughtful? Lazy? Hard… Continue reading Our first theme; Reptiles & Amphibians
