I am the God of hellfire and I bring you …

…well, fire of course.

We started off sensibly by making a fire extinguisher from vinegar and baking soda.

And when that didn’t work (think I held it too far away) we illustrated why we always have buckets of sand at campfires.

We also looked at weighing a candle before and after burning it and results of depriving fire of oxygen.

Then we started building structures and burning them.

Ever more elaborate structures.

Then for good measure we threw on some paper caps.

Great fun was had by all.

  1. I just found you and read your post ‘not just a mum’. So true – our children have to understand that everyone has needs and they have to attend to ours as much as we attend to theirs. That’s how society works and we would be failing as parents if they didn’t understand that. I also wanted to send you some support to get over the wearing times as I know what it’s like; we home educated our two right up to 16yrs of age and it was an extremely joyful experience although not without challenge at times but worth every minute. I learnt that it is as important to take care of mum as it is to educate the kids – it’s part of their education anyway! I’m writing about it all now to help support other parents going through it so I just thought I’d connect with you, say ‘hang in there’ and let you know I’m here.
