Enjoy the Journey
One of the best things about running Imagination Laboratory is being able to engage my kiddo in the experiments I share on my site and my Facebook page. He is my inspiration for the business after all. Our last Science Sunday attempt reminded me of what I tell parents all the time, “Enjoy the journey!”After a failed experiment (FYI old Ivory Soap does not “explode” in the microwave), we had to shift gears to a tried and true baking soda, alka seltzer tabs, and vinegar for some fizzy fun. While I was a bit upset that I wasn’t able to get the soap experiment completed to share with you all, I had a blast watching his face light up like it was his first time doing the experiment. It WAS the first time our little experiment bubbled over which elicited big, big belly laughs from him and lots of paper towels from me. In science and art there is required exploration/research to what works and what does not and you make adjustments as many times as you need until it is correct or you step back and come to it. In my stepping back I was able to create a pretty nice memory with my little guy.
