R and J had a couple of friends over yesterday afternoon. It was so gorgeous outside so that’s where they stayed. They had fun inventing and playing made-up games. One such game included the making of a potion which was composed of mud, twigs, and other debris they collected.
While they were working on their concoction I was building a fire. I thought it’d be fun to have a wiener roast for lunch. Then the boys came over and were trying to figure out a way to put their potion INto the fire! Why? Because they wanted it to bubble. Well, I figured there must be a safer way that didn’t involve fire and possible maiming. So, I pulled out the dish soap, baking soda and vinegar.
We did two different methods. The first involved a 2 litre bottle filled with water. That one was decidedly anti-climatic. The second worked perfectly, though, and even elicited a great response from the kids. And I got it on video.
When Adrian came home that night we told him of my our cleverness and showed him the video. Yes, dear that’s very nice, he said. Little did I know that he was literally cooking up a plan for a volcano of his own.
Go to my private blog to see videos of both.
