It’s the simple things that can be the most fun. Especially when the results are unexpected! Mari taught the kids how to make a geyser. I don’t remember what the ingredients are, but we basically built a cone and decorated it with play-dough. The play-dough by itself was actually pretty fun. Once the geysers were properly decorated, the ingredients are added that makes the geyser bubble over with blue water! I thought it was pretty fun too.
The second science experiment was to make silly putty. Until I saw the results, I actually thought that silly putty was like play dough but more plastic like – the stuff I remember you could press to a newspaper and make a copy of what was there. Turns out this was more slimy. Still very fun for the kids!
