We really had fun with our hot chocolate mini-unit study. The kids had a blast watching videos on how Hershey makes chocolate and the history of chocolate on the Internet. They each got to eat a few Hershey kisses while watching, of course. Then we took baby food jars and but a serving of hot chocolate mix in the jar. The kids then added marshmallows and closed the jar. On top they put a Hershey kiss and glued a packaged candy cane to the side. We gave them to all their medical specialists. They came out really cute.
Then we made chocolate play dough! Yummy, it smelled so good! That kept them busy for about an hour. You can find the recipe here.
Here is Tomato Staking at its best. If you want to know more about tomato staking, read here. It was so warm earlier this week that I decided to whitewash the fence. This went much faster with all my helpers. Amazingly, no one got covered in paint. Although Goldilocks did forget that she was holding a paint brush when she decided to itch her face. LOL
