...Friday's Favorites...

I don't know about you, but sometimes these cold winter days can get long & it can be hard to find things to keep Zac entertained inside. I was watching Studio 5 yesterday & they showed this little science experiment that turned out to be fun & very exciting to watch. You'll have to try it if you're in a crunch for something fun to do. Here's what you'll need:

...an empty plastic bottle...
...1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide...
...squirt of liquid dish soap...
...3-4 drops food coloring...
...1 tsp. yeast dissolved in 2 Tbsp. warm water...

So what you want to do is put the hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, & food coloring in the bottle. In a separate bowl or cup or whatever, mix the yeast and water together. Once the yeast is somewhat dissolved, pour it into the bottle & be prepared to watch the magic happen!! :)


Also...probably one of my favorite magazines/websites for ideas on fun things to do with your kids year round is FamilyFun. It's been one of my favorite idea sources for things to do with kids for years...if you haven't already been to their website, go there by clicking here.

I came across another site that had a few things that looked fun too...you can visit that site by clicking here.
