getting out for a bit
this time with our Girl Scout troop
crafting at the library
waiting for Paddington to start
skewering gummi bears for science
We ended up with over 13 feet of duct tape and 96 skewers evenly spaced down the length of it, and then we put our gummi bear wave machine into motion. (We got the idea from the good folks over at Plot 55. Video instructions here.)
Here's a quick video we made and a Bill Nye episode about waves if you're interested.
* You may have noticed that Camille is wearing headphones in most of these pictures. Camille is extremely sensitive to some types of sensory input, and she has found that wearing noise-reducing headphones helps her not get overwhelmed in many situations, including being around her exuberantly loud sisters. She even decorated them with paint and paint markers. I love it when we find a coping strategy that makes such a huge difference.
