Happy New year!

New year is here, before we start off with new activities I would love to look up at our last year posts. Here is a quick recap of the top ten most viewed post as per Blogger stats!

#1 - How Plants absorb Water: Celery Science Experiment

We carefully peeled the upper layer of celery to check the colored capillary tubes inside the celery and how the water is absorbed.

Make Pipe Cleaner Snowflake and use it to stamp Snowflakes

#6 - Upcycle Plastic vegetable containers
I reuse clear plastic containers that have berries, tomatoes, spinach, grapes, lettuce, okra to store and Organize my daughter's toys. They come in various sizes starting from small to big and perfect for storage.

#7 - Four Seasons Play to go along with the book "Forever Friends"
We love the book and the story. For the Book + Activity, We made the toilet paper roll trees with different tree tops for the different seasons.

To play this game all you need is a laminated 100's chart and a Dice.
