  • 5 Weeks on 1 Week off

    We started year round school this year so we have been doing school all summer.

    5 weeks of school, 1 week off.

    Last week was our week off so I planned some experiments for the week.

    We don’t have a lot of time for fun things like this during our regular school week so I like to do them on our week off.

    This is fluffy slime.

    -Shaving Cream

    -Craft Glue

    -Food Coloring

    -Liquid Starch

    I got the idea from this post but did not have some of the ingredients so I winged it.

    The next day we did an oil and water experiment from this site.

    I still had some Alka Setlzer tablets from our lava lamp experiment we had done.

    So when they were done adding the colorful drops of water to their oil they made lava lamps.

    I used coconut oil since I had a lot on hand and it is nice and clear.

    I like anything that extends a craft or experiment so I am glad we could add on to it!

    We usually do field trips, games, experiments, or vacation on our weeks off.

    I would prefer to do nothing but that goes downhill quickly with 5 kids.

    Do you plan things for your downtime?
