Today we bought syringes.

A weird title, huh?

We went to First Friday Mass then bought some syringes for a Science experiment – from the book Teaching Chemistry With Toys.

The experiment? Marshmallows in a Syringe – demonstrating the effect of pressure on gas.

We learned about colloids and Boyle’s Law.

Plus, the kids managed to eat a few mini marshmallows – now all I need to buy is dark chocolate, nuts, glace cheries, coconut and we can make rocky road!
