A Fun Day of Learning and Adventure with Your Kids

Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Looking for something fun to do on a boring day?  For those who have science minded kids an $8 investment in dry ice can provide a full day of fun and learning.  Along the way our kids have found the YouTube channel of Steve Spangler.  Steve has made a great business of conducting simple science experiments that are educational and fun to watch.  YouTube has been an inspiration for lots of fun do-it-yourself toys and experiments.  My kids have learned how to make carbonated ice, make square bubbles, remove egg shells, and build a potato cannon that I have also found quite impressive and, pardon the pun, but a blast to shoot.  Last summer my middle son asked if I could pick up some dry ice.  What followed was a day full of experiments and fun for $8. 

Check out the following video for a few of the samples by Steve Spangler http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aFLYNiHitI    Dry ice is -110 degrees F and can be dangerous so it’s a good excuse to spend the day supevising the experiments, having fun, and building memories with your kids.
