I love science! This "experiment" was very simple and very fun! I taped a square in the middle of Caden's table and put several objects in the middle. I didn't need to explain much, Caden started blowing the items with his straw and the cotton ball flew off the table. I said "The cotton ball is so light it blew right off the table." Little Drake was delighted! He scurried off to retrieve the cotton. When Caden was trying to blow the cat and the cookie cutter and they didn't move I said, "They are too heavy to blow off the table." After several minutes of "experimenting" we ended up blowing a little foam 'x' back and forth to each other and both the boys loved it! This was a great way to learn about heavy and light and it worked out those lungs and cheek muscles!
