Today we finally woke to snow, not much, but enough to play in. We were up, fed, dressed and ready to play in record time! After getting all cold outside we bought the snow in to do some experiments on it. First we springled on salt and watched it melt. We then got some food colouring to see what happens when added to the snow. We discovered that it doesn’t spread like it would in water but stayed in drops. When stirred the food colouring stayed in clumps for a long time but the colour did eventually spread to the rest of the snow. We found that red food colouring is stronger than green as we used twice as much green as red but the snow stayed an orangey red. We also noticed that the snow didn’t turn brown as paint would have if we’d mixed red and green.
We thought we’d stay with the snow theme and make a snow man out of Lego. A little challenging but we managed it.
E wanted to do something in the kitchen, so decided to make jelly. I gave him instructions and left him to it. He was very proud that he made it on his own.
