Volcanoes and Don't Wake the Bear
The kids have been talking a lot about "hot lava" lately, as part of their imaginary play, so on Tuesday we thought it might be fun to do an eruption with mentos and diet coke.
We also worked on creating our own volcano using paper mache and paint that we will erupt this week.
On Thursday we tried a new game that the kids really enjoyed called "Don't Wake the Bear."
We talked about how bears and other animals hibernate during the winter. Then we took turns being the bear, hibernating under a big blanket. We placed a tambourine next to the hibernating bear, and the other kids try to snatch the tambourine without making a sound and waking up the bear. When the bear wakes up they chase after whoever has the tambourine.
