Heart Kids day.
(Click on the pictures above to enlarge them and browse the gallery.)
With a balloon a seal was created around a jar half full of water. Two straws were inserted into the balloon seal and on one was attached the excess balloon neck. This formed a one way valve just like the valves inside the heart. When we pressed on the balloon water came out of the straws. We had lots of fun with these!
We spent some time in the afternoon creating hearts and using crayon shavings to make hanging decorations.
We had to melt the crayons between two pieces of waxed paper. They looked beautiful when they were finished but it didn't take long before the paper fell off our hearts.
What do you think went wrong?
