While you’re staying home during this time of social distancing it’s a perfect time to do all that Spring Cleaning you’ve been thinking about. But don’t stress it. Take it one room at a time, one task at time.
Today we’re working on baseboards. With cleaning supplies a little scarce, we’ve made a couple DIY Reusable Cleaning Wipe recipes.

Have you ever wondered how planes fly in the air? They are so big. For real.
Science Behind Flight
Aviation the flying or operating of aircrafts.
Aeronautics is the science behind flight.
There are four forces that help an airplane fly. The four forces are lift, thrust, drag, and weight or gravity.
Thrust is generated by the engines of the aircraft.
Our thrust is going to our forward launch throwing the paper airplane.
Lift is the force that directly opposes the weight of an airplane and holds the airplane in the air. Lift is generated by every part of the airplane, but most of the lift on a normal airliner is generated by the wings.
Gravity is the force that will be pulling a paper airplane to the ground.
Drag is the aerodynamic force that opposes an aircraft's motion through the air.
Day 3 Arts and Crafts with your kiddos. We are making super cute corner bookmarks, toilet paper roll binoculars and popsicle stick puppets.
These are easy to make
Join us on Facebook LIVE at 10A CDT with a few St. Patrick's Day crafts for kids. Here is a little history on St. Patrick's Day.
Day 2 Art and Science for kids.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
We are talking clouds ? and rainbows ? .
Doing 4 projects today.
Cloud and Rainbow activity
Piece of white paper
Have your kids sort out the colors and then count the number of pieces each color takes to get to the pot of gold.
Make your own Rainbow
Cup of water
white piece of paper
Hold the cup up fromt he paper and shine the flash light into the water. Move the light around until you see a rainbow appear.
Rain cloud in a Cup
Fill Cup with water, almost to the top. Cover top with shaving cream. Using the eye dropper grab a bit of the food coloring and insert into the shaving cream cloud. Slowly release the food coloring and watch it float into the water.
With so many school closures due to the COVID-19 we are doing our part to help educate or children and keep their minds positive and engaged.
Every day at 10AM CDT we will be sharing learning and crafting time on Facebook LIVE. Let’s start off the week with some fun experiments for kids using items you may have at home.
These vinegar and baking soda experiments are classics and you can scale this up for your older kids. Include research on the chemical reaction, or making a rocket. ?
Scale it down for younger kids and enjoy the bubbles and colors.
What’s the Science Behind It:
When vinegar and baking soda mix there is a reaction between an acid and a base.
1. Vinegar is the acid
2. Baking soda is the base
This reaction causes a gas called carbon dioxide to bubble and foam.
Materials you’ll need.
Empty Water bottle
Small plastic cups
Dropper or straw
Baking sheet (too catch over flow)
Let’s create and learn. ?
