|We tore up some newspaper and some colored paper and soaked it in water for 15 mintues.|
|Then Vann took all the paper bits out of the water and put it into the blender.|
|Then we poured some of the water into the blender with it and this is the mixture we were left with after we blended it...looks pretty gross!|
|Now Vann is squishing all the water out of the pulp.|
|After we used a rolling pin on it, we took it outside to dry in the sun.|
|The boys thought it was pretty neat!|
|And here it the finished product...our purple paper! It's a bit thicker and stiffer than regular paper...and it's small and in the shape of a circle...but it got the point across about how paper gets recycled into new paper. It was a fun experiment!|
We started swimming lessons again tonight. Vann was excited cuz he went up a level so, now he's in the big pool...fun stuff! And Chayce...well he wasn't feeling it tonight. Here's a picture of my pouter...
|The little sh!t has been excited for weeks to go to lessons and when we got there he sat on the side and pouted the entire time!|
|Vann had a blast and enjoyed every minute!|
Okay, I'm off to bed. Hope your day was great!
