We are trying to savor every last minute of summer – and what better way to cool off than with a water balloon fight?! You can pick up a few bags at the dollar store, and I was amazed at how long they kept our girls entertained! I’m talking over two hours of trying to fill them up, tie them, and do all sorts of experiments.
Here’s the first one that didn’t go as planned! Just had to roll with it…literally.
I honestly didn’t plan on teaching at all during our Sunday Fun Day, but we ended playing and experimenting quite a bit. Some of the concepts we talked about were:
- Less and more
- Sink or float
- Comparing volume with varying size balloons
- Which is heavier, the one filled with water or air?
- And for the little one size terms like: small, medium, larger, big, little, full etc.
