Our week started out well

We have started a unit on birds and bird watching. 

This is a puzzle they put together and wanted me to take their picture afterwards.

We made a craft called Rainbow Squeeze which was alot of fun and very clean play. Recipe down below.

Then to end it we have been chewing bubble gum around here ( a Christmas present ) and some of the kids have made some big bubbles that popped all over their face.

Actually I got the flu on Wednesday and just got out of bed this our week ended differently than I planned...but thankfully the kids can go with it quite well without me. Thanks to my older kids who manage this mega family almost as good as I do. 

Here is the recipe for Rainbow Squeeze :

several colors of food coloring
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup cornstarch
4 cups cold water
medium sauce pan, wooden spoon, measuring cups, small bowls, resealable plastic bags

Mix the sugar and cornstarch together in the saucepan until well blended. Add the water, Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened, about 5 to 10 minutes. 

Divide the mixture into several bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each one. 

When the mixtures have cooled, spoon some of each color into a plastic bag and seal. Then mush and squoosh.
