Tuesday January 26

All sorts of fun..
You woke up to Christmas gifts that someone dropped off way late. So naturally there was exploring with the new toys
teddy bear play
dressing dolls
carting stuffed animals and playing cards
Tea party with pear tarts for breakfast

We had some water play...oh, I know what you are thinking... but there's a method to such allowed madness here...
ice experiments
making frost

Reading, reading, reading
Used tins from tarts to make ice sculptures and then estimated how long they'd take to freeze

Read about Archimedes and how he came up with catapults.
Read Simple Machines on levers and learn how to make them
Using fulcrum, force and load

Hung up our ice sculptures for visiting friends
