Science
We mixed water and see what happened. It was really fun.

We put different ingredients in water to see if they mix.
We tried soap powder, flour, sugar, coffee, oil and kool aid

Then we tried to see if mixing them makes a difference

And we felt the water when they are mixed




We did not plan this, but we talked about coloring in the end. Because that CRAZY kool-aid stained their hands just by TOUCHING!! I'll NEVER let them drink this...so scary...



I LOVE this picture (not the photo, just the picture) of the big sis reading to baby sis. She is an amazing caretaker.
