The weather is starting to warm up in Perth and with a series of warm afternoons the boys have been enjoying a little bit of water play.
While it isn't quite hot enough to get out the paddling pool (although Junior might think otherwise) we have been having fun with buckets, bottles, funnels and spray bottles.
Yesterday we also made an ice and salt sculpture - an idea I found in MaryAnn Kohl's fantastic book Science Art. We added a few drops of food colouring to a spray bottle of warm salty water and squirted away to sculpt a large block of ice.
Junior was quite engrossed in this for a while and then set his sculpture out on the outdoor table to watch it slowly melt. Rascal was more interested in experimenting with the spray bottle.
