Introduction: YM - Submarines

About: "Every child is born blessed with a vivid imagination. But just as a muscle grows flabby with disuse, so the bright imagination of a child pales in later years if he ceases to exercise it" is one of my favor...

This weekend I wanted to make something with my 6 year old daughter and her friends. It was a nice warm day so we settle on submarines.

The exercise was quite simple:
Bottle
Stones
Balloon
Rubber tubing

Put the stones into the bottle to make it sink to the bottom of the tub.
Put a balloon into the bottle and blow into it to make it rise to the top.

Oh - and don't forget to make you submarine "cool" be decorating it with stickers

My main goal with these children is to entice them away from staring at ipad screens and use their hands and creativity to interact with the physical world making things. For one afternoon, at least, I was successful :)

    that really makes sense for kids to leave from digital world to the physical world,the real world!
