More l craft
Today we were going to have an outdoor play time at the park but the weather turned and is cold grey and miserable. So a quick dash to the shops to but aspro clear and baby oil. Why? For today’s craft. Home made lava lamps. See at the bottom of the post for the links for today’s activities.
Anyway the recipe said 2/3 oil and 1/3 water. The first bottle I think I put too much water in guesstimating. I also let Emily add the blue colouring and a lot got squeezed in. It also called for alka seltzer but not finding any I bought aspro clear.
Emily loved watching the colours bubble up but also lived shaking the bottles as well and peering down the openings.
She kept wanting to add more and more.
To distract her I tried to do some colouring but she wasn’t in the mood so I finished off her lanterns for her.
The next big favourite craft was making a ladder because it involves glue. I cut out a lowercase l and while she traced the shape with her crayons I cut out little pieces of card to make the rungs and she enjoyed sticking them on.
