Yesterday, we put a glass outside to collect rain water. Umm, then we forgot to check it until this morning, and it appears as if it didn't rain. Since we know that isn't the case, our rain collecting turned into a lesson on evaporation!
Last night, we built our first tent - inside, of course - and the kids slept in it all night! That was exciting!! The next time we sleep in our tent, hopefully it will be outside.... Rain, rain, go away.....
Today, the kids have put Frosted Cheerios into a container with milk and have put it into the freezer to see what happens to it. I'll let you know how that turns out.
If you have any great ideas for simple household experiments, please pass them along! My kids love science and experimenting!
