Science is fun.
My girls spent a couple of hours in the backyard yesterday afternoon. Playing. What were they playing? Well, ahem, um, they were lighting ants on fire with a magnifying glass. Hmmm. Long pause while that gets processed. It wasn't long before they ran out of ants. The tricky little buggers all went into hiding in the cracks. Which begat the ant trap. Constructed out of play-doh, it was only moderately successful as a trap. But making it was damn fun -- even with the groans & eye rolls from MOTH, who despises play-doh. Baiting was even more fun - and the scrabble cheese-its allowed for spelling word practice, too. One thing always runs sloppy over into the next!! How do ANY of us EVER get ANYTHING done?
