Im sorry to those of you who are glad the holidays are over but Im SO not one of those mums. I totally miss her when shes not here and its weird for the other two as well... this week will get even bigger when Jared starts preschool :( gosh what will I do????
Over the weekend, Jumeirah wanted to try and experiment we had seen all over the net, creating our own lava lamp.
This needed baby oil, water and food colouring and I told her we could do it :) And so she found a bottle and we began.
Firstly, you pour in about 1/8 of the size of the bottle with water. Then fill the rest with baby oil.
I stupidly squeezed it too hard so it fizzed and bubbled and became incredibly cloudy so we had to let it sit for awhile... Of course I also have no patience so it wasnt completely clear when we started.
So we added the food colouring to it which was cool cos the food colouring stays in a ball shape until it hits the water, then it slowly bursts through and colours the water. By this stage the oil was a bit clearer but still a little murky, thus the crap photos .. sorry :)
I have never seen a little face light up so much. Photos dont do it justice but it was totally amazing to watch, even through cloudy oil :)
It was about now that I realised we were missing a very main ingredient, an alka seltser tablet. Not to be put off, we hunted through the cupboards and found ENOs ( a stomach settler) and figured, "well its fizzy so surely it would work" and so we tried it.
