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.
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.
