A Good Day for Project


Today there was no school because of subzero windchill. That means I have 6 kids in the house. Three of my own, two who are staying here while their parents are in Hawaii, and a neighbor who's mom had to work.

Allen and Sam are studying volcanoes in school and must each build one of their own. I figured today might be a good opportunity for them to work on it. Allen concentrates on his recreation of Mt. Versuvius.




Here Allen shows off his paper mache hands.

Looks good so far, Sam. Wouldn't you all agree?

Looks great to me. Are they going to be dormant or active volcanoes?

Looks like you kept everyone busy and happy!

They will be active. In school they will "erupt" with a mixture of vinegar and baking soda.

Michelle, I only wish I had managed to keep everyone busy and happy all day.

I think ours is the only district that had school today. Brrr.....

I can't help but think of the Brady Bunch when I think of making volcanoes; Marcia's new friends (who were quite snooty) got all dirty and Marcia laughed about it. I'm sure the kids had fun. Hopefully it will warm up soon!

Priscilla said...

Kim, and here I thought I was well-versed in all those Brady Bunch episodes. I don't remember that one!

Wow! It's wonderful that you are so open to helping out these other families. i bet the kids did have a blast all being off of school and together.

"We" made a vulcano, too, yesterday!!

The volcanoes look GREAT! I had Brian do one when he was around 5 or so. But they weren't nearly so complicated as those.

Rachel said...

Our kids both had to do a volcano project too. I remember erupting one of them at home 1st, and it shot so high and came down all over my butter, which was sitting on the counter on a butter dish.
