Sid the Science Kid Wind Experiments

How does the wind work?
After watching Sid the Science Kid
We decided to the wind experiments in our bathroom.
We used  a straw to make waves.
This would have been really fun to do with a bike pump!

Then we blew our toy boats, just like the wind blows real boats.
This was baby H's favorite Learning Time to date!
I love the chubby hand splashing!

We blew soap to make sand dunes.
We should have used sand, but we didn't have any.
The soap was a BAD idea, it got in the straw and in our lungs. :(

We also went outside and did Straw Art
We watered down tempra paint and used a straw to blow the colors around.

It looks a little like squished bugs,
Just don't think about it.
We used a dropper to put dropplets onto the paper.
And used the straw to move the paint around.
(Yes the dropper has a crazy shape, dishwasher accident!)


  1. I didn't know you started a new blog! What a great thing for moms like ME who need help teaching kiddoes. I know there are so many things I could and should be doing with Cami every day to help her LEARN. Now I can get great ideas from you- thank you! Love the cute activities you've been up to.

  2. Great ideas for learning about wind. We need to try these!


Thanks for your great comments!
