This past week he did a lot because I had a lot of supplies on hand. I was even able to finish his owl pillows.
Birdhouses and Bird Nests
We each painted a birdhouse and made bird nests with birds and eggs. DAG impressed me with his nest. We hung the bird houses and DAG asked for birdseed.
We also did a shirt project. We used the bathtub foam letters to spell his name and he used his Jeep to paint tracks across the shirt.
Experimenting with Color
DAG mixed the primary colors- red, blue and yellow first. Than he mixed them to make orange, purple and green. He did this several times and has asked to do it again.
I really liked this experiment and so did he but next time I am going to do it as a volcano. I will mold some homemade moon sand around the jar and have plastic dinosaurs around the base so when the volcano erupts he can see what a volcano really does. The recipe is simple: 1/4 cup vinegar, 4 teaspoons red jello and 2 teaspoons baking soda. Add in that order. I would recommend a smaller jar- 8 oz.
