Exploring Ice

It is "I" week @ LSU 
and we are Exploring Ice!
We froze water in Tuperware containers overnight.
We touched the ice and talked about how it felt,
"cold, smooth, hard, slippery, wet, etc..." 
 Then we added salt to our Ice and watched how it began to change form.
We noticed, "holes, cracks, grooves, lines, scratches, etc..."
We added food coloring to the top and watched it dribble
down the cracks and lines of the broken ice.
We then held the ice under running water
and watched it change shape even more. 
The water created larger holes and cracks.
We continued to play with it as it melted in our hands. 
We had so much fun exploring Ice today!!

Let's Color Us Some Pasta!

We have used this plain colored macaroni pasta in many of our sensory bins and wanted to add some color.  We were inspired byToddlerTeachingThemes.com at http://toddlerteachingthemes.com/macaroni-necklaces/ where they use hand sanitizer to make the colors more vibrant.  We had read this before, but were not sure of the ratios.
 So we divided up our pasta into 4 ziplock baggies as we were using 4 neon colors.
 We had at least 4 cups of pasta per bag so we added 20 squirts of hand sanitizer.
 We then added color with the ratios from ToddlerTeachingThemes but decided we needed more color.  I'd say we added ~30 pinches of color. (remember we had 4 cups of pasta so your ratio for 1 cup is roughly 5 squirts hand sanitizer and 6 squeezes of color.)
 The kids loved mixing the bags.
 And here are our bags after about 10 minutes of mixing.
 We laid our pasta out to dry on cookie sheets.
 After the pasta was completely dry, we added it to our sensory bin.
The kids couldn't get enough!  We had so much fun!
We also colored rice following the same direction as above.

Watch our Orbeez Grow with us....

Today we placed our Orbeez beads into a sensory box and added water.
Instantly they began to expand and grow.
 We  put the lid on and came back an hour later
and this is what we saw...
Almost an optical illusion where the beads laid under the water level 
giving them an iridescent look.
 2 hours later we checked again and our beads were full with water.
So fun to touch and feel.  
We can't wait to see what they will look like tomorrow...
(will post pics)
