Conner got a Totally Funky Science kit for Christmas, and it's been sitting on the shelf waiting for the right opportunity. This summer has been the time! Since we all know I haven't been sewing much in the afternoons (with him not being at school) that leaves some great one-on-one time for us.
ok... maybe not always great. But we're trying!
The kit is full of a lot of basic stuff (flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt) and a few fun things like red cabbage juice powder, citric acid and polyacrylamide crystals. It also has some little measuring spoons, mixing cups, and a dropper.
We've been playing with it according to their directions and made some beautiful crystals in a test tube. Today he had a friend over and we adapted their directions a little so as not to use the special supplies all up.
