Mad Scientists Have Invaded Our House!

The girlz decided to play "mad scientists" this morning - complete with safety goggles, name tags, rubber gloves and "lab coats". They told me to "Skid-addle, Mom. This is serious business." In other words, "We don't want you to see the mess we're making and stuff we're getting in to." Here's a few pics from their "experimenting"...

The "laboratory", a.k.a. the "lavatory"...

Squirting water on Nerds candy - enjoying the "fizzle" sound...

Their version of "dry" ice...

The scientists...

The best place to buy science experiments for kids in our town is Classroom Corner. They have a great selection of concoctions!

Making C.S., a.k.a "Cool Slime"...

Mixing chemicals...

Love that goop!

Making a lava lamp...

Watching the ingredients bubble...

I'm thinking this Saturday morning should count towards our school hours ;-)

The girlz just love science and one of their favorite science dudes is Bill Nye the Science Guy. We have lots of his videos posted on our homeschool site here. Just go to the right-hand column and scroll down to "Bill Nye Videos Used on This Site". There's lots of topics from germs to nutrition to the sun. Check him out!

We love Bill Nye also because he makes science so fun!
Looks like the girls enjoyed their science experiments! I love the lava lamp one that's very cool! We did some experiments on Sat too, that's so funny but I guess great minds think alike! I haven't posted them yet but will do it soon, you are so quick Super MOM!!!!
