Experiments and nephew sitting

Last week Jaia and i made a rocket and launched it – I enrolled Jaia in the tinker crate mailing list  and this past box included supplies to launch a rocket. We spent a good 1/2 hour outside playing around.  We tried the citric acid + baking soda + water in the rocket like the kit recommended but didn’t get much of a launch. Then we tried vinegar and baking soda and got MUCH better results! Sorry there are no pictures of the actual launch but it goes pretty quickly –

They give you a plastic bottle and you make the little stand – It was pretty cool 🙂

Last night I got to spend some time with my nephew while my sister and her husband went to parent teacher night at school – He’s 5 and a total kick – He had to show me his iPad games – both of them racing games 🙂 and then I coaxed him outside since the evening was so nice and calm!

We tried the rocket –

This one launched a good 5 feet into the air – I tried to have the camera ready but no luck –

And we drew roads on the sidewalk and played cars until they crashed and ended up in the community pool 🙂

I’d forgotten how much fun five year olds are! So busy and energetic!! We had fun 🙂
