Witchlette has refused to partake in any of the book crafts I have planned for the summer. She has also refused non-book crafts. She’s just not feeling art right now. She’s not very artsy and is “required” to do art in school, so I am not about to force her to complete art at home if she doesn’t want to.
She does, however, want to do science just about every day.
On her birthday, when asked what she wants to be when she grows up, she responded that she didn’t know. It used to be doctor, but it became ninja, but then knowing that isn’t real, it became unknown.
A few days later, it became scientist.
So this morning, when she asked to do experiments instead of art, then swim the next day, who was I to say, “No”?
We retried elephant toothpaste. Still not as advertised, but we still have the ingredients we bought soley for this and will try it again next week.
We also did an alkaseltzer lava lamp, which was a huge hit.
And of course, after we finished our three experiments (we did toothpaste twice), we had free play…
…before going to rinse off in the shower and have lunch.
