Over here at my (Tiffany) house, things have been in major transition as I have started working full-time (outside the home) and Jake (my awesome hubby) is now a stay-at-home dad (at least for this upcoming year as he takes a break before starting in on doctoral work). I will still be writing for PlayEatGrow, but some of the ideas will be coming from him.
The other day, we made Color Explosions.
1. Milk (not skim)
2. Food coloring
Exploring the connection between milk fat and dishsoap.

Afterwards, Ada had fun swirling together the colors.
