I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Funtivity Friday - Science Experiment: Can We Build a Boat Out of Paper and/or Similar Materials That Will Float?

We wanted to see if we could make a boat out of household items like  paper and/or other similar materials that would actually float.

What we did:

1) First we made a list of potential materials to try

2) Then we made our boats out of:

1) Paper

2) Cardboard

3) Saran

4) Pipe cleaners and string

5) Tin Foil

Our results:

All of our boats sank. Maybe next time we'll try making a boat out of more than one material.

How would you make a boat out of household items that would actually float?


Tune in tomorrow for a Saturday Special.
