No summer is complete without some homemade lemonade.
Juicing lemons is hard work.
Mixing the sugar in warm water. Benjamin looks pretty excited!
Drinking the fruits (literally) of our labor.
I think he liked it.
Benjamin has a new fascination with volcanoes. I bought a couple of books about volcanoes for the boys to read.
After reading about volcanoes, we decided to make our own. *I scaled this "recipe" down a bit because we used a water bottle instead of a 2L soda bottle.
Mixing the dough.
It is the same dough we used to make our Olympic medals.
The boys pressed the dough around the water bottle.
Okay, so it doesn't exactly look like a volcano.
Anxious to see what happens...
The boys thought this was really neat. For me it meant about 30 minutes of prep and clean up time for about 3 seconds of lava fun. Oh well, the boys loved it and that is the reason I do all this messy stuff to begin with.
