The Foot Book

Today we read "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss. 

And of course that always means making a really big mess like this one. This is actually some messy semi-free  play after we made some footprints.   Jess enjoyed this for a long time.

We used some of our toys with feet and made footprints in baking soda. Then we added a little food coloring and squirted in vinegar.

Why does it bubble up? It was fun reading about the science behind all the fizzies.
 Martha with a really sweet smile and wearing alot of her food coloring. I shouldn't post scrubby pics of her, but that smile is just so darned cute.

Nona writing about it.

She TRULY did like squirting it out----just like her paper, dictated to mommy, says.
Max accidentally made a volcano, 

and it was very cool. 
  Here is Cole making another volcano after the lesson time.
We also made a Family "footbook" with everyone's footprint, but I just deleted the pic.  It's late, so you'll just have to believe me.

We had a great time. I'm always impressed how easy it is to get some writing out of my people if they are having a good time and really like the subject. It was an all around good week incorporating some "Seuss" into our lives. Happy Birthday to the doctor.
