Ocean In a Bottle Experiment!

Good morning!

Have you been to the beach yet? Here is a fun experiment for you to do with your preschoolers today: make an ocean in a bottle!

Here is the link with full instructions: http://happyhooligans.ca/ocean-in-bottle/. The photo evidence is impressive, but watching the bubbles and waves move in person is definitely more fun. Enjoy!

Bubble Wrap Craft!

Oh, the many crafts that can be made with bubble wrap!

Make a sheep like the one in the picture, or make another animal of your choice. Here is the link for instructions: http://www.craftymorning.com/bubble-wrap-sheep-craft-kids/. I think the sheep in the picture looks like it could be from Shaun the Sheep, enjoy!

Sock Caterpillars!

Make your own stuffed animal, or in this case, caterpillars!

You can use tube socks or stocking socks, depending on how long you want your caterpillar to be. Craft stores do sell fabric glue if regular glue does not work. You don't have to add floral wire either, I thought it would be neat to bend it in a billion different ways and have it stay that way each time because of the floral wire. Shenanigans.
