The last post was supposed to be this post but apparently I had some thoughts I needed to get out…
For the past week, everyday Kaya has asked me to buy stuff for our front stoop. It wasn’t until this crafty science project do I realize, she doesn’t want the Halloween stuff, she wants the Halloween experience.
Originally, I planned to do this water bottle foaming dino-monster. Only as I was setting it up for an after-school craft did I realize I had no water bottles. So I scramble around the house in search for an alternative. Aha! Red plastic cups and leftover sock puppet pieces are all I need to make our grody monsters!
Step 1- Cut out mouth in plastic cup
Step 2- Pull out the craft supplies and make a monster!
Step 3- Fill cup with vinegar to just below mouth line
Step 4- Add a couple drops of food colouring of choice
Step 5- Add dish soap (the girls do this step so usually amounts to A LOT of dish soap!)
Step 6- Sing ‘Just a spoonful of baking soda, helps the monster regurgitate… In the most disgusting way…’
And if you’ve ever done this experiment before, you know just one round will not do. Bring on round 2!
Such a huge hit, all without going out to buy a thing.
