It's Playtime: Exploding Art (Enough Said!)

I like things wise.  I can't always get my kids in on the action though.  My son attracts dirt like Pig Pen but heaven forbid he gets paint on his hands.  He won't even play with Obleck (or goo, or what ever you call cornstarch and water in your home).  My daughter is now a "trained" artist and is above making a mess (although leaving her mess after painting is a different story).  Well this week on It's Playtime I'm featuring the ultimate messy art.  This project rolls art, science, outdoor, and messy play into one package.  So without further ado I give you.....

 I'm actually kind of jealous of this project in the "why didn't I think of that" way.  My son's preschool teacher made rockets using film canisters and Alka Seltzer and the kids loved it!  Why didn't I think to take it further? Well Kudos to Housing a Forest for taking it further and creating some fantastic fun.  Go and check them out...right now!  What are you waiting for? Go!!!!
