This week’s Geography group on Leicestershire focused on the National Space Centre.

We made balloon rockets across my living room (no photo, I was balancing on a chair).

Investigated forming moon craters by dropping bouncy balls in flour.


Made puffy paint from pva and shaving foam and made moon pictures.

This was followed by lots of mess and they made impromptu ‘reverse pictures’ – spread the puffy paint everywhere and then drew in it.  Brilliant stuff, so very tactile.

A really fun, very messy session 🙂  Trying to work out what county I can tie filling a paddling pool of shaving foam to play with into!
