learning.



I saw a pin a while back about how you could teach your children about weather using shaving cream, water, and food coloring.  One summer day while the children had a massive amount of energy were being perfect little angels, I decided to give this experiment a try. I had all the necessary items on hand. I set everything up, I called my offspring over to have a little fun and creative learning time. After we were all ready to engage our minds, I realized that I couldn't find the original pin/ article that actually taught the lesson...nice. I winged it, and by winged it I mean I totally made something up about clouds, rain, and weather...my kiddos totally bought my every word. :) Overall, we just played with the colors, water, and shaving cream...a whole lot of "let's see what happens if..." 

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think."  // Albert Einstein

Do you ever just "lets see what happens" play?

Ha! I love the "winging it" part…kids just think we are the smartest things and they have no idea we are clueless 99% of the time! ;)
