Colour, weather and craft…

This past week we did experiments with colour mixing in a tub of water, this was beautiful to see, colours dropped into a tub of water and then slowly mixing together… Red and blue becoming purple etc…
Jenna’s painting of the colour wheel…

We have been learning about weather, this a Barometer that Erin made to measure air pressure. It is so easy to make, stretch a balloon over the top of an open tin can, put a little vaseline around the top to enable the balloon to move and then put an elastic band around the balloon. Tape a straw to the middle of the balloon. Put a piece of cardboard next to the can with high at the top and low below. Now you will be able to tell when you will have fine weather and when you will have rainy weather. AND it really works!

Jenna and Erin’s needlepoint. This was such a fun project for the girls… They drew a picture on paper, transferred it to their callico and then embroidered around their drawing…

    Oh, so much fun learning is going on at your home!

    My middle daughter Katie has been busy with embroidery, too. I love watching the creativity become something so pretty!

    Way to go on the color wheel and barometer, too. We love experiments and art work here. ;)

    The colors mixing together underwater is incredibly beautiful! I would love to know more about what you used for this experiment, my kids would really love this! The color wheel painting is gorgeous as well!

    Hello Linds

    Wow, you have captured those colours mixing so beautifully. Studying the weather really is so interesting. I am having fun doing it with Aaron too. Jen and Erie really do have crafting talent. The embroidery is beautiful.

    Have a great day
