Once again inspired by Chirri & Chirra - however this time it was the visit with the lizards in their fluorite home that had us making candy shards and Starburst sweets!
I think this was probably the prettiest session I've ever had. The hues of pink, purple, green, and yellow in my home studio were so lovely (and I know the sweet little girls were enamored with all the pink).
Two years and four year olds hard at work, making "fluorite" that sparkles with many colors. I used two bags of ice, vinegar and baking soda! The littlest one sprinkled the baking soda on top of the ice, while the bigger girls sprayed and squirted colored vinegar. The results were gorgeous and they were all very keen to try the ice.
Instead of reading the story "live" to the girls - I recorded myself and they watched the read aloud instead.
Making candy shards. These girls were fierce candy crushers!
Creating Starburst sweets - I melted down squares and the girls molded them like play dough, creating new shapes and sweets to enjoy. (PSA the starbursts get warm quickly and watch out for the pink ones - they can hurt tiny hands if you're not careful).
