Melting Ice Science Experiment with Salt & Liquid Watercolors. Color Surprise Eruptions. Directions: The set up was SO simple for this. I love simple activities! I put one large color tab into three of the containers. The tabs come in red, blue and yellow. To create other colors I put two small tabs of two different colors in the remaining containers. Then I covered the color tabs with a spoonful of baking soda. A little baking soda really goes a long way. If you don't have color tabs, food coloring or liquid watercolors can easily be substituted. Peanut (26 months) saw me carrying the containers outside to the toddler table, and he threw down the trains he was playing with and chased me outside.

He didn't need any instructions. He said ooh and ahh and continued to squirt, asking me to fill up the bottles each time they ran out. As you can see, the eruptions spilled over onto the table. After squirting the vinegar and making the baking soda overflow again and again (like I mentioned a little goes a long way) Peanut started mixing the liquids to make even more colors. 10 Awesome Candy Experiments for Kids.

Fall Nature Scavenger Hunt with Free Printable. River Bliss: Homemade Holiday Traditions, Part 2: The Gift of Light. My husband is fond of remarking that our home is like Santa's workshop at this time of year. We are an artsy bunch year-round, but I've always been a big fan of homemade holiday gifts, making December a busy time in an elfin manner of speaking here on the riverside.

It began of necessity when I was staying home with my children and had more time than money, but I have held onto this tradition because it is so gratifying. I especially enjoy making lanterns. There are so many great metaphors around candles and light: lighting a candle rather than cursing the darkness, letting your light shine, a single candle lighting a thousand more, etc. This year, I decided to try my hand at making beeswax balloon lanterns, which I hadn't done in a good ten years.

This year, I experimented with hearts cut from pressed autumn leaves and embellished by drilling some holes along the top. I love the creative process! © Susan Meyer and River Bliss, 2012-2013. Wood Slices + Sanders. During the wedding planning for my brother's wedding, one thing that the lovebirds knew that they wanted were slices of wood for their centerpiece. Unfortunately - finding slices of wood locally proved to be impossible. Although we found them on Etsy they were pretty expensive to ship to Canada. I kept racking my brain trying to figure out how we could do our own.

It wasn't until I was at our cottage - a few weeks before the wedding that it hit me - We have a TON of wood stumps on our property and all I needed was someone to slice them. (It seems obvious I know, but really it was the slicing part that was stumping* me) The "ah-ha" moment was the realization that a man who works at one of my favourite cottage antique spots always was wood working outside the shop, and it hit me that if anyone knew how to slice the stumps, he would. Meet Andy. :) A few bucks later, my car was full of slabs.

I have a little mouse sander but it wasn't working as much as I'd like it on these. Glue Resist Art Project for Kids. You know how much children like to squeeze glue bottles?
