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
