News of the Day 1-28-2011

Today we..
- made castles out of blocks
- read the last story in "Poppleton in Winter"
- played knights
- played house and babies
- created new and finished old books
- played card games (Fairy Queen)
Outside we...
- played Rudolph and the mean hunting dog
- sled down the hill
- went singing for the first time in a while

First I made a baking soda water solution (1 part water/1 part baking soda). Then used a cotton swab to draw a smiley face on a piece of white computer paper with the solution. The picture had to dry, and then using a foam brush I applied grape juice (!) to the picture, which had been somewhat invisible to that point. Voila, the face appeared! All the kiddos will be trying their hand at this and we will talk about the chemical reaction behind this magic next Science Wednesday...
