Crafts

Wow! I have really been bad lately. We have squeezed in a few crafts and they were really fun ones on that. I've been dragging my feet on the letter "X" because I don't know what to do for it...any suggestions?


Did you know that Dr Seuss wrote a book called Bartholomew and the Oobleck? Well, he did! It's actually a cute book and there is an oobleck craze out there. Now I know why.This stuff is so cool! It has this incredible texture that never ceases to amaze. It's solid until you touch it and then it turns liquid. I literally had to drag Coop away to get him to stop playing with it. If you want to know how to make it look "oobleck" up on the internet. It's simply cornstarch and water but I can't remember the measurements.

W is for Web! It was perfect with all of our Halloween stuff sitting around.

Okay, another fun book project with a book called "Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea". Really cute and clever book. I got a container and put their bath toys in it. Fabulous activity for a rainy day.
Then we made "I Spy Aquariums". They are still having fun with these. Just combine half water and half corn syrup in a bottle and add some sparklies. Love it!

I knew about the corn starch and water thing..it makes a great teaching aid in YW..but I had NO idea that it had a name and that it came from Dr. Seuss!! How cool!

I made Oobleck for my class when I was student teaching...I think we were cleaning it up for hours afterwards. That stuff is so fun, but a huge headache to clean. You're more patient than I am. Maybe I'd let my kids do that outside? Maybe.
