This past Sunday I did a fun science project with my grandsons to help them think about the power of the words they use with others. At first my grandsons were not sure if they wanted to work on this project, but once we got started, they continued to work on it for hours - yes, two hours and then another hour later in the afternoon! They got the point as we talked about it and now we have a simple way to remind and encourage them to use their words gently.
This is a simple project you will be able to do in person with your children or grandchildren . . . and one you will be able to do long distance as well. For this project you will need . . .
- Paper lunch bag - one per child
- Plastic straws which "bend" at one end - one per child
- You are able to do this project on a table or counter, using the table or counter-top, but I used Corelle dinner plates - one per child.
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 2 Tablespoons dish soap
- measuring cup/spoons
