Recently I purchased as many Test Tube Steve Spangler Combination Science Packages that I could find.
We pulled one of the “Just Add Water” Tubes and began to play.
We made Snow. Like we needed more, but this is what T. choose. It was fun and T. did enjoy learning about the polymers. He was very excited to see the reaction happen in just mere seconds.
MOST Museum in Syracuse is a great place to really see some fantastic exhibits and for the kids to get a work out!
Inside the exhibit hall is an enormous playground. Today we were not so fortunate to have found the place school free, so we had hundreds of public school children screaming and playing hard, so it really brought out a lot of anxiety for me and gave T. some trouble while we were there. Thankfully, I got to see quite of bit of the new exhibits before melting down myself. I have a really yucky sinus/throat cold that has been challenging my strength and patience this week. We still all had a fabulous time!
Saturday the 27th of December, we all took a trip up the Science Center in Ithaca, NY. This trip was possible only due to our dear freinds, the Chens. With their lovely holiday card we found two tickets to the museum. We love going to the museum. It is hands on and always has something new.
T. took off as soon as we got in the door and I only saw him sporatically throughout the few hours we were there. S. and B. on the other hand played with everything! I got lots of pictures. But as you will notice, S. I think had the most fun out of all of them. hehe
After our time at the museum, we hung out in the commons looking in some of our favorite stores, “AlphebetSoup” which carries many Waldorf Friendly materials, including Stockmar products and german made board games, and “Lets Get Cooking”, which has all sorts of great and sometimes unique cooking utensils, cookware and appliances. We also enjoy the Used Book Store which has two floors of books floor to ceiling and they are all used and inexpensive.
