This love has moved to both the bathroom and kitchen sinks - playing about with different measures of water and the fun of pouring "mixtures" between different receptacles.
So with a spare afternoon, we decided to do a "proper" experiment. I have been following Lisa White's blog An Ordinary Life, where she posts so many different activities and learning fun she shares with her home-educating family. We decided to try one of the water experiments on the blog - Tornado in a jar. This was great fun, although my dodgy photography does the actual tornadoes created, no justice at all.
All we needed was a jar of water, washing up liquid and a good swirling technique, and hey presto!
It took a few attempts to get a good tornado going but lots of fun was had and the entire area around the sink is now sparkling clean too...
After a while, Kiddo decided that he had had enough of tornados - and wanted to "make tea" instead. I was served a lovely and "mmm, delicious" glass of strawberry soufflé
We still have to write up the experiment in his new science logbook - I think we may have to do it all over again to refresh his memory of our findings, but that wont be a problem, any excuse to get wet and have fun is always allowed.
