Next week is my week to plan the camp curriculum. Most the of the projects are ready to go, but I keep finding new ones and testing them out for suitability.
Today, in my kitchen, I blew rainbow bubble snakes:
This surpassed all expectations for sheer awesomeness.
You need an empty plastic bottle, and old sock, some tape, some dish soap, some food coloring.
I discovered this fabulous activity on the blog "Housing a Forest" (follow the link for the how-to)
Grab your nearest kid, or grandkid, or niece or nephew or neighbor and try this right now.
I had so much fun all by myself, I filled my kitchen sink with rainbow bubble snakes.
Imagine how much fun I'll have when I do it with the kids next week!
Tonight's index card is aptly titled "preparations"
as I prepare not only for next week's curriculum, but for a long weekend in my favorite place on earth.
I leave Thursday for a few days on Rangelely Lake (in Rangeley Maine) and there is much to be done before I hit the road.
Now which art supplies shall I pack???
