The boys were bored, and restless this morning, so I set them up with a boredom buster activity from our latest library find, FamilyFun Boredom Busters, 365 Games, Crafts & Activities for Every Day of the Year. It's an excellent book, the kids have been pouring over it, picking the projects they'd like to do.
Our project today come from the chapter entitled, "Brain Boosters".
Big brother filled a Ziploc bag with water, while little brother stood ready, with a package of wooden skewers (you're supposed to use sharpened pencils, but we had the skewers on hand).
He poked the skewers, one by one through the bag.
Thanks to the polymer nature of the bag, the water didn't leak out of the holes.
Or, at least, not too much water leaked out.
If you don't have access to the FamilyFun book, you can find this experiment, as well as a recipe for Gak, for more polymer fun, here.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
