A new craft work

March holidays before the next academic year lots of time at disposal... this work is a new kind for us. even i enjoyed doing it with her. We saw the original post here and then we changed certain materials to suit what we had at home. To my surprise she gave me many good ideas and was able to easily think and correlate

Her write up on this craft

The original craft had used pom pom for clouds and tree branches. She came up with the idea of using cotton.  For the tree trunk, they had used pipe cleaners. we found a natural stick and formed the tree trunk. She really enjoyed the Quilling paper work that we chose for butterfly and flowers.

Exploring the Neighbourhood

The title sounds sophisticated..but the actual version is very simple. One day, the original plan was the park. But,  as we stepped out late, I changed the plan. We 3 girls went walking around the 4 streets of our home. Just simply walking with only my mobile in my hand.

The elder one was hesitant at first but later she became enthusiastic about the idea..especially when we started playing the "Who spots flowers first?" game..and I allowed her to click pictures (from my mobile) of all flowers that we spotted during the walk...

It was fun !

Some pics that she clicked ! 

I helped once or twice but she clicked these pics mostly!

Solar Effect On Colours

Materials Needed

2 bottles
Black and white Paint
Paint brush


Take 2 bottles
Fill both with water and close the lids
Paint 1 bottle black
Paint 1 bottle white

Open the lids
Keep both bottles in the sunshine for certain time. (we kept for 1/2 an hour)

Record temperature of water in both bottles

Our observation

water in the white bottle - normal 
water in the black bottle - 101 C


Colours have power to attract or detract sunlight or sun rays
Each colour reacts differently to the solar energy
Black colour absorbs heat and white colour detracts heat

My girls notes
