r a i s i n g q u e s t i o n s "What mama - how do you get the paper to unfold like that" - just the kind of question I wanted my kids to raise exploring this STEAM project.
Join us for this week's theme waterplay @steamkidschallenge
This is just water and folded paper - so simple but then learning is fun.
If you haven't tried this experiment, I hope you will as you might end up with that look from your kids " mama - you are the coolest ever" - best feeling ever

These fabric bowls turned out surprisingly well.
My kids love to make handmade gifts and to decorate their own room with things they have made.
You can swipe through and see the process by my 9, 7 and 4 yo assisted by me.
But here is what we did:
- cut the fabric into small neat pieces
- find a bowl and wrap it with Saran wrap - apply the fabric pieces to the bowl using glue. Use lots of glue. We made an inside and outside with them fabric - then dry and carefully peel away the saran wrap - you can gently cut the fringe if needed
c o l o r s c u l p t u r e This is a sculpture made by Fjor's kindergarten.
During last week they have been working on this masterpiece in front of the city hall.
The kids have been recycling and collecting blue, red and yellow things from their home and brought them along with them in kindergarten. In the doorway to the kindergarten there have been three large boxes and the kids have been placing their items in the box that matched their item.
From early childhood, children use their senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them. They do this by touching, tasting, smelling, moving and hearing.
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates a child's sense.
