I came across this awesome list of things to keep on hand so that you can be prepared for any science experimenting that might come your way during the homeschool day.

The Water Cycle

I found this great new blog meme to follow, Science Sunday. I first discovered it at Along the Way and I thought it was an awesome idea. I had been wanting to post about some of our science adventures and thought this was the perfect opportunity to weave it in. There doesn’t seem to be a weekly theme, which is great because then I can get a whole new batch of science ideas from reading all the blogs that link up.

Special Needs – Sensory Bottles

Have you ever made a sensory bottle? We made a sensory bottle on Wednesday and the kids all loved it. We started with an empty 2L bottle (but you can use any size).

Homemade Fizzy Soda, Blanket Tents, and Loads of Giggles

What a great day we had yesterday! Homemade Fizzy Soda After each of the boys completed their school work, we worked together (one-on-one) to make homemade fizzy soda. We had a great time making lemon soda. I found the original recipe on-line somewhere, but it was yucky (I tried the recipe first and down the sink it went). We came up with a recipe that worked well for us. It is still a bit different than what you might expect, but it worked for us. 1/4 lemon juice 1 cup cold water 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 cup sugar Pour …
