With only two main ingredients, your kids will love discovering the magic of fluorescent substances in this glowing gelatin project. How We Did It Heat up 1 cup of tonic water over the stove until it begins to boil. Pour the flavored gelatin packet into the glass container. Carefully add in the boiling tonic water and stir until all the gelatin is fully dissolved. To help cool the mixture, slowly add a second cup of (non-boiling) tonic water. Tonic water will make your gelatin glow more brightly under a black light, however it will have a slightly bitter taste. Once the entire solution is mixed, place the gelatin mixture into the refrigerator and let it rest for about 4 hours or until firm Then, take out your solid gelatin and place it under a blacklight.

Easy Density Experiment For Kids

What do you think? What you need Treacle Golden Syrup Water Food colouring Vegetable Oil Small items to test for floating Instructions Pour each liquid into the glass slowly starting with the treacle, then the golden syrup, followed by the water with added food colouring and finally the vegetable oil. Drop a few small items in and see which layer they float on. You can see below that we have a plastic bug floating on the top, a LEGO brick floating on the water and a paper clip floating on the treacle. The science bit! For a full explanation see last week’s post. We’d love to see your creepy or even very pretty density creations. Glowing Oobleck - An Easy Slime Recipe.

Fall Math for Kids: How Heavy is a Pumpkin?

Here’s a fun fall math activity for kids!

Fall Math for Kids: How Heavy is a Pumpkin?

Build a simple PVC pipe balance that will allow kids to investigate the weight of a pumpkin. And really, there is nothing inherently “fall” about the balance, so if you build one you can use it all year long. We built a simple PVC pipe frame for our balance, but you could also create a balance by simply hanging the coat hanger over a door knob. The frame definitely has some advantages, and you can take it apart for storage. It’s more stable than someone opening the door while you’re using the balance – something that happens in our busy house! Choose Your Units We chose coins and small rocks as our units for comparing weights. I asked Owen to guess how many rocks would be equal to one pumpkin. It took 13 rocks to equal the weight of one pumpkin. Candy Corn Catapults! (Four ways to build a catapult out of items from around the house!)
