Pardon my off pictures. Having a newly crawling child makes my meager photography even a bit more lacking. : ) I obviously am a science fan so I normally find myself looking for the more sciency (yes that is scientific jargon) type of play for my kids. This experiment deals with density.
A ketchup packet, a 2 liter bottle, and water and you got yourself a science lesson.
|Make sure your packet kind of floats.|
Find detailed instructions here
|Put packet in 2 liter and fill with water .|
|Give it a squeeze and watch it sink|
|Grr put some umph in it|
|Look Roly poly (Yes that is more cupcake icing on his face . I hide my face in shame)|
|Hmm let me try this thing.|
The funny thing is when my husband came home he was fascinated with it as well. You mean it sinks when you squeeze it?! The man has a chemistry degree and it still intrigued him. It reminded me I have three adorable kiddos and not just two. Hahaha.
