I’ve been thinking that we need to have a “take-away”, especially at the Star Parties – something that kids could participate in creating, and then take home with them. We’ve thought about having something to give – stickers, pencils, etc, but in keeping with the interactive theme of ACCHaoS, I think some they make and take is appropriate.
Of course, I need to find something – in fact, several somethings (something different for each Star Party) that is quick, simple, and not terribly messy. I don’t want to wear out our welcome at RRC, and I don’t want it to be something that it a disaster in the car on the way home. Hey, I’m a mom – I know how you feel about those “gifts” that trash the inside of your car.
So I’ve been searching, and where better to look than Pinterest (my secret addiction). This is what I’ve come up with so far:
- Make Your Own Slime – Eeewww. That green, gross stuff. Easy, few ingredients. From Our Best Bites.
- Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball – from About.com
Good idea, or making my life harder (something I excel at)? What do you think? Have any good science-y activities?
