Lately Livia has been regressing. It is a pattern that I have gotten all too familiar with — 2 weeks forward, 1 week back. So this afternoon when a quick activity was needed I could not think of anything more fun and engaging to do than a simple sensory science activity. As an added bonus it is blue which got Meatball super excited! We had a blast with this volcano pumpkin experiment!
We found these white pumpkins at our local grocer for insanely cheap. I picked up a couple of them to do our Teal Pumpkins for FARE, but by the time we were done decorating those we still had a couple left. I had seen different versions of this science experiment on a couple different sites such as Little Bins for Little Hands and Growing a Jeweled Rose and figured this would be a fantastic way to have some fun before decorating another pumpkin!
