Messy Science Day

Today was Messy Art & Science Day

The objective was to show the children that science is important and can be fun. Almost everything we do has a scientific basis to it.  

Take playing with bubbles for example: 

Isn't it amazing that when water and soap are mixed together and pulled by air or blown on can create bubbles?  Why do they float and what amazing colors do we see? 

What happens when we add color to the bubbles? 

Art with a twist: blow bubbles with food coloring in a cup and place the paper on the bubbles and VOILA! BUBBLE ART.

Finger and yarn painting:

Now for some explosions: 

For this experiment, the ingredients were baking soda and vinegar.  Watch to see the results performed by our little scientists.

Did you notice the intensity on their faces? They were amazed by the outcomes.
