Hot air balloon ride using DJ's fish lantern thing that he made at school a while ago.
Races in the lounge with the animals.
They were hungry apparently. So they took the mini m&ms out of the boys Advent calendars. We'll see if they get replaced or not. It won't be with more m&ms anyway!
Toasting marshmallows. Douglas used DJ's volcano that he had made at school. They had a lot of dinosaur play this term with all sorts of cool things to do with dinos & so the volcano was a handy choice for cooking the marshmallows. (the next day DJ wanted to eat them... he told Stuart he wanted a hot one! bwahahahaha )
The boys love experiments & anything like that. Doug & Maggie started an experiment to make ice crystals. They wrote a note to let the boys try too with instructions. Lucky for us they left all the required things to try it ourselves so the morning was spent putting that together & now we can watch what happens over the weekend. The bottom picture is what Maggie & Douglas did overnight! Came up well. Clever little things they are!
Edited to add - Borax is suddenly hard to get in Australia. No one sells it now except for an agriculture/garden/farm goods store. The stuff they sold wasn't 100% borax as it turned out so it took a lot more & a lot longer to get the results that we were finally able to try again.
