Following on from this post about how I feel a bit guilty about baby H spending a lot of time on the school run or watching swimming lessons, I took advantage of big brother and sister being at school and nursery today and made it all about baby H.
We went to a lovely soft play, just for under 3’s with some of her little friends this morning, then with the help of Z after school we had a little science lesson. You know how much I love science!
I filled one pan with warm water and one with cold, handed over a bath toy and some beakers and sat back to watch. Z explained about warm and cold to her, then they had lots of fun transferring water from one pan to the other and feeling how the temperature changed.
It didn’t take long before they were flicking it at each other and the floor got a bit dangerously slippy, but they had a great time. Most importantly they both giggled a LOT!
when I saw the first pic I thought it was another cooking post….baby H stew! She is so gorgeous, can’t wait to meet her, I’m sure all the time spent doing the school runs etc will just make her a more easy going & relaxed little girl in the long term x

What a great simple idea for exploration! Thanks for sharing 🙂
So glad you liked it!
I feel guilty about how little one on one time i get with J compared to B. even if i try to play with him while B is there B takes over or wants me to do something else. I know he doesnt mind as he is a baby but i do!!
Your piccies are great and it sounds like Baby H enjoyed herself – she is gorgeous xx
I think she did. Its hard to get the balance right isn’t it?
That looks fun 🙂
It was, thanks! x
What a great way to incorporate science for little guys, and for your son to feel smart!

Looks like fun, my kids would love to explore the temperatures of water this way – and they are no longer babies. But it wouldn’t be so good on a wood floor. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.
