Little Scientist famously hates having messy hands. HATES.
So what is a logical activity for Halloween, you ask? Pumpkin Cleaning, of course!!
Happy Halloween from Nerdfamilymathfun!!! 🙂
The ladies at iPPP are some serious awesomesauce. Check ’em out!
So we’ve been battling the PLAGUE for two weeks in Nerdcasamathfun.
(And by the plague, I mean a cold combined with lots of Dad overtime. I exaggerate. It’s what I do.)
So our afternoon structured activities have consisted of a lot of sitting outside in the backyard sunshine and reading our favorite books over and over and overandoveroveroverover.
Last week while I was teaching the Little Scientist discovered the open flat of water bottles and created himself an obstacle course. Nerddadmathfun said he was entertained forEVER. We’re talking a half-hour of self-entertainment. An ETERNITY in toddler time.
Case in point:
And, if you have the time to kill, NDMF took a video of the excitement here: toddler obstacle course. (You’ll have to excuse the middle camera part – kiddo’s in the “grab your face when I’m talking to you ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION” phase *grin*)
A brief translation – OLLIE means water. We don’t know why. Just roll with it.
The ladies at #iPPP are still putting up with me – you should go read their Awesome Funnyness.
Can you BELIEVE it?!?! @PragmaticMom ASKED me to write about fractions. On. Purpose.
Quick, go read it! Before she realizes the error of her ways 😉
Have a great week!!
I might as well. I mean, DUDE. Have you SEEN the experiments that we’ve been doing recently?
(And now you all know why I only do toddler crafts. Because my adult crafts turn out EXACTLY the same way as my toddler crafts – but at least here I can blame “learning” and “almost-2” for the mess *evil laugh*)
Today’s science activity is that old workhorse – microwave a bar of Ivory soap on high for 2 minutes. Yes, it has to be Ivory. No, it doesn’t hurt your microwave – although your kitchen does smell fresh and clean for a few hours. (WIN! It’s like when you spray cleaner in the air so guests THINK you cleaned… Wait. You don’t do that? Me neither.)
As always – the ladies at #ippp are awesome. And haven’t kicked me out yet *grin*. Check ’em out!
