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 🙂
Bright Blessings –
