Morning. Where do I find the parachute template please. I keep reading “ use the template below @ but there is no template Maybe because I’m on my phone ??
My two loving the different textures of the polymers.
Simply the best way to wake up... Hearing squeals of delight from your children as their snowman has grown so much over night.
Thank you so much
We've had fun making ball launchers and rain clouds! Thank you Mini Learning Lab for these ideas!

Can you blow a paper ball into a bottle?
 
Give it a go! The paper ball should fly out...not what you were expecting, right?
 
The bottle is already full of air, so you can’t blow more air into the bottle instead the air moves along the sides of the bottle. This creates an area of low pressure, known as the Bernoulli Principle.

Find the best material to protect your egg from splattering!

1. Gather some different materials from around your house and some ziplock bags
2. Pop your raw egg inside one of the bags and test how well they protect your egg.
3. Devise a protective frame for your egg

Do you love building bricks?

We do! Motivated by our upcoming car journey to Scotland (about 9 hours driving time!) I've created 24 brick building challenge cards that I'll pop into a tin along with a handful of bricks for Mr E age 6.

Perfect for long car trips and rainy days!

There's also a pack of challenge cards that will inspire new build ideas but better for home 💡

Members' only benefits!

Can you build a boat out of foil?

Nothing else!

Test how many passengers it can hold (we used marbles)

Think about how wide, deep, large it is...count how many passengers it holds and redesign after you test to see if you can make it better!

"It's a bean, it's a bean!"

Joss, my two year old, is currently obsessed with finding seeds, she calls them beans, and whenever she's eating fruit or out in the garden she's on a mission to find the "beans"!

We've been celebrating Pea Week in The Explorers' Lab this week, looking at planting, growing, pollination and more. There's so much to explore!

A great way to start exploring plants is to head out on a nature walk and take some time to notice the array of different plant life, from trees and flowers to grasses. When you're out, collect some different samples on your way too so that you can have a go at identifying the different parts of the flower by dissecting it (link to how to is in the comments)

It's my first birthday today!

That’s right, today I’m celebrating my first birthday!

It’s been a strange year for our children without the usual parties to attend, so I thought I’d share my favourite party activities that you can try out at home or in school, and you don’t need to be celebrating a birthday to enjoy them.

Check out my blog post for how to make Slime & Sherbet and find out how you can inflate a balloon without using your breath (link in bio)

Wow! We're really lucky that one of our garden shrubs has become a ladybird nursery!

A ladybird's lifecycle has four stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult.

Just like a butterfly, ladybird go through metamorphosis changing from pupa to adult. Newly emerged ladybirds are bright yellow, which means we managed to catch them in the first few hours before they get their spots!

Amazing ❤
