Often (well more often than I like!) the boys ask for water play – or they just go make a mess of the bathroom sink!
And so I said yes but I was intentional about it. We did floating and sinking.
I sent them to find small things. Then we took turns picking ones for our own piles before we dropped them in the water we made a guess (which we correctly called a hypothesis – maybe I am becoming a home-schooler Sophie!!) and then we tested our theory.
By the end of it even wee Bounce ‘got’ the concept of floating or sinking. I didn’t take the theory any further, mainly because I don’t do science and I’m not even totally sure why things float or sink!! Don’t bother to try to explain I’m infuriatingly happy in my scientific ignorance!!!
After our special focussed time I let them go for it. And then I gave them a towel to clean up the water, which they did. They are sweet, sweet boys.
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.
Thanks for all those who have left me encouragement about this – my most important project of all – and for those who tell me what they are getting up to. I appreciate it.
Simple. Achievable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be.
