After learning about household products and their chemical reactions, the Sprout kids set off to make a non-newtonian fluid and then experimented with their own concoctions including slime, balloon “explosions”, an oozing fluffy potion nicknamed “elephant toothpaste” and much more.
What a great way to learn about Newton’s third law of motion, momentum, and pressure then through a explosive project on bottle rockets! By placing the right ratio of baking soda and vinegar inside a plastic bottle and then corking it and watching the chemical reaction take place was amazing fun!

Who doesn’t love this delicious way to see in action the changes in matter from a liquid to a solid in under ten minutes?!? Topped with sprinkles and hot fudge, YUMMY!
We began our week with a scavenger hunt outside. Then the kids made their own scavenger hunts, leading into day two! First they picked a theme, next they brainstormed possible answers to go with the theme, and finally they made puzzles, riddles, codes, mazes, word scrambles and so much more! Each kiddo had 4-7 items to decipher! It has been a great adventure.
The sprout Kids worked with several household ingredients to learn about density, non-Newtonian fluids, and chemical reactions to make lava bottles, oobleck, and super bouncy balls! Then they were set loose to come up with their own slimey creations!
