Hello Rainy Day Mum readers, I’m so excited to be sharing our playtime here today. Cerys and I both have boys the same age and we’ve both noticed how they are just becoming interested in science-type investigations. I’ll admit, this has always been my weak spot up until now. But I believe that you become the kind of parent your child needs – and if that means raiding my kitchen to explore baking soda and vinegar reactions, putting a bag of flour and a jug of water in my curious 2.5yo hands or mixing up six different colours of water to explore absorption so be it!
Adding the food colouring was a worthwhile step since it made the experiment so visual for the kids – we made purple snow and orange cotton wool…
