Before sharing images from the party itself, I wanted to showcase some of the preparations we did, and take pride in Roo and Red's level of engagement to make the party such a success even before it happened. They were declaring the "awesomeness" of science in random conversations, and "experiment" is a newly minted magical word. They were listing out the things we needed for the party, and taking on tasks that their little hands could do. One of the key objectives for the party is already achieved -- Roo and Red, curious, engaged, and taking ownership of specific tasks. The final piece is in encouraging our friends to feel the same way we do about Science.

|The look of "awesome!"|
|For the DIY "Lava Lamp"|
|Testing experiment with a Clear Baby Oil|
|The middle is using Cooking Oil, which didn't quite work out as nicely as Baby Oil did.|
|Working on it, one bag at a time. (Snapped before I left for work)|
|They're getting pretty nimble with my scissors. ;)|
|The collection that greeted me on my desk when I came back home from work and Mandarin class. |
So proud of them!
|More work for the little ones. :)|
|Putting on the paper bag handles, and putting jars and random things inside each bag.|
