    • These are fun beads to play with! I didn’t know tonic water was carbonated. So we had a big ‘ol mess when we started.
      We didn’t use food coloring, but the UV flashlight gave it that blue color. You should try it.


    • We love these random science experiments. They would turn out better if I followed instructions, but I tell them we learn more by making mistakes.
      Growing up I was terrified of science classes; the concepts felt so removed and abstract. I just knew I was bad at it. Over the years, I’ve realized how interesting it is and that it’s doable, even for science newbs like me.
      I hope you’re learning something from these too!

      • I am – I remember the pineapple as a good example. I did not do well with science experiments either. I liked biology and zoology classes, but not the physical science classes.


      • I had to do that too – how interesting was it to learn the properties of each rock, some had two names like Mica and Fool’s Gold which made it difficult, or how much they weighed, what type of deposit they made if you rubbed them on paper … not the kind of stuff I would ever use again. Yes, Biology and Zoology were great (except for dissecting the worm, frog and fetal pig).
