Today was a combo of Mad Science Sunday (yes, I am mentally stable & realize it is not Sunday ;) and a sensory tub. It was all about FIRE. We started by watching a video on youtube about fire fighters and how they put away the fire. Then, Sarah got dressed in her costume (she got it on her birthday). Here:
Then, we went into the kitchen to do our science experiments. Yes, Sarah was scared to touch the fire, I told you before she is very cautious by nature so basically I'm the one who did everything while she was watching except putting away the fire with water, she did this one. By the way, I loved the snipping tool that enables me to take whatever image shot I want from a video, now I can actually focus on whatever shot I want, I just pause and cut and it captures whatever crazy position it is like these for instance:
Spraying a lighted candle with a deodorant spray.
She tried doing it but it was difficult for her.
Now, to our experiments. You need:
- 3 candles (one very small)
- Glass cover
- play dough to hold the candles.
Yes, fire needs air to keep burning.
heat and fuel.
In this one, we just added salt to the fire to watch the changes of color :)
Then, I showed Sarah some safety basics like to:
or call 911 ;)
Finally, both girls played with the fire-themed sensory tub. It contained:
- red rice & sand
- a fire truck with a ladder
- an ambulance
- a fire helicopter
- letters "F"
- an axe
- fire extinguisher
- safety cones
We'll continue on that them (fire safety) one more day.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed.
