Halloween Houses

Lots and LOTS of sugary candy … that’s how we roll here at the BL! (then we send them home!)


Burnham Bunch: Halloween

Two more days until Halloween! We invited the kiddos to wear their costumes …. we had Anna, a Fancy Pirate and a Sheriff. We read two books: Spooky Wheels on the Bus by J. Elizabeth Mills (with flannel board activity), Click, Clack, Boo! by Doreen Cronin (super cute!); sang a song: Horns, Fangs, Knees and Claws (twice!), played a game: Guess the Ghost Game; and a made a spooky ghost craft. AND everyone left with a treat! Phew! Happy Halloween to all!

Science Explorers: Sink or Float?

Halloween = candy! We blew-up Peeps in the microwave, and watched the beautiful colors of Gobstoppers mix together. We also did a hands-on experiment for the kiddos: which candy would sink or float. We started of with a variety of chocolate candy bars … and they ALL sank to the bottom. This was not the result that I expected. So, we decided to try some sugary candy: Skittles, Starburst, and Lifesaver jellies. These all sank to the bottom as well! Last up … a Peep? What would happen. Well, it floated! Why? Well, as the kiddos stated, a marshmallow is filled with air and therefore will float, just like a pool float. Lots of fun …
