Air project II

As a continuation to the air project combined with the summer hot weather i came up with a simple and already done by many idea- Boats. Can be used many materials that float on water a straw and left over paper or any other material that can be used as sail.

Than together with the kids we talked about the power of the air and of course jumped into the race. If you can find a bigger container for water or even a kids pool line up few kids and ask them to blow in the sail so they will move the boat. It is a lot of fun for kids to play with water!

Happy Orthodox Christmas

Orthodox and Catholic Easter  are not on the same date.  The Orthodox church follows the Julian calendar (old calendar)  and the Catholic church follows the Gregorian calendar so the dates for Christmas and Easter and other holidays are different. The Orthodox holidays are later that the Catholic. So this Sunday the 5-th of May is Easter. Here is another craft for Easter.
