Stephen makes Scientific Concoctions

I am a boy. 
I am two years old. 
I like to make messes.

Like when Mommy and Daddy went out for Valentines Dinner. Sissy and I did some cooking.
That was fun mess making!

Mommy decided to channel my mess making into making scientific concoctions.
First we gathered four empty bottles.
In the first bottle we put water and glitter:

In the next bottle we put veggie oil, water, glitter and beads.

The next bottle was really fun and messy. I dumped a whole bottle of glue in there, then added a tiny bit of water and then some blue food color. I did an especially good job of spilling the glue on the floor.
(Glue bottles are very entertaining for little boys. Plus mommy says squeezing the glue is good for fine motor skills. I am not sure how. Most of my fine motor cars go "vroom vroom", not "squirt, squirt".)

Finally for the last bottle we got to mix a concoction of all kinds of fun stuff--lotion, shampoo, baby oil, and food coloring.

Scientific mess concoction making was fun.

But really I didn't care much about the bottles after I was done.
I preferred the messy part.
We saved them for few days and then added more food coloring to each of them.

Now, if you don't mind, I am going to go find some real messes to get into.
See ya around!

Oh, Boy Stephen, it looks like you are having lots of fun! And you have a very brave Mama too. I can't wait to see what happens in those bottles!

Hey Stephen,

That looks like a lot of fun! I'll have to make sure my Nanna sees this post so I can talk her into fun stuff like this.

I'm diggin' on the Elmo jammies dude. And those cupcakes look like they taste pretty good.

Lemme know when you find some other good messes to make. I'm up for it... Don't know if Nanna is though. Heh!

Your friend,

Experiments are good fun aren't they Stephen. I can remember liking ones with soap powder in them.
Maybe my Mum wasn't so keen, but I liked it.
