Science for kids. Or men.

Oh, good ideas.  Mr. Engineer has recently taken an interest in teaching Little Spaghetti about science. So, last night, we decided to do "Volcano Painting."  You may have seen this around Pinterest.  You basically just put baking soda in a dish, color some vinegar, and then drop the vinegar into the baking soda to make little fizzy volcanoes. 

So, Little Spaghetti was carefully and dutifully making his little volcanoes at the table.  Meanwhile, sitting next to him, was my husband.  Making his own volcanoes.

I think, in the end, I was the one who really learned my lesson this time.  I'm not sure I'll ever get the red food dye out of my table.


  1. Aww, this is priceless! We've gotten some books from the library to do experiments. But now with the internet, it's so much easier to find science experiments from the comfort of home. Pinterest is great. We also have
    that we like a lot.

    Oh, have you tried using Soft Scrub or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on your table? I wouldn't try it on wood, though. :)
