This is the first edition of Try and Tell link up (blog carnival, meme, whatever). If you have a blog and would like to link up at the bottom, I would love it. It can be a new post or an old post. If you are one of the many out there that do not have a blog, well you are in for a treat! At the end of this post, you can just click from one blog to another finding neat things that other women want to share. How fun! Try and Tell will happen every Tuesday (post will be up around 9 pm CST on Mondays) and is like a virtual play date for moms. Think of it as Show and Tell from our school days, but for grown women. No you do not have to be a mom of a young kid, or even a mom. All women love to talk and share with friends. We are all friends, so share away!
Me first, me first! [Jumping up and down with my hand waving wildly]
stole borrowed this idea from my son’s preschool class. It is super easy and fun. All you need is a white ice cube tray (or white egg carton, or separate clear/white cups), food coloring, eye dropper (medicine dispenser), and water. Fill the tray with water, but only halfway. Put one drop of food coloring in a couple of sections. I put red, yellow, and blue in 2 sections per color.
Give your child the tray and the dropper. This is great independent play! They can explore and experiment with colors. They get to see what colors they can make and what colors it takes to make them. It helps them be creative while learning neat science skills. Science skills like displacement and vacuums just to name a couple. This is a really fun activity and a great way to spark up some curiosity and creativity on a snow day. File it away for those super hot summer days, too. I told, now you try.
Now it is time for you to tell. Leave a comment to share your thing for today or add your link below.
