Science in the Blink of an Eye


By Deborah Shelton


Help children develop a love for science or nurture their already growing interest with these simple experiments.

Cloud maker
Ever wanted to catch a cloud in a bottle? Now's your chance! Pour just a splash of water into a two-liter plastic bottle. Light a match (a grownup's job) and drop it into the bottle. Immediately replace the lid and squeeze the bottle a few times to watch your cloud form.

Magic flowers
Create your own unique flowers with this neat trick. Fill a vase with water and eight to 10 drops of food coloring. Cut the stem of a white carnation at a diagonal and place the flower into the vase. After a few hours, you will notice a slight change of color in the petals. Let the flower soak overnight and observe the dramatic change in the morning.

Mouth lightning
Don't worry -- this doesn't hurt a bit! In fact, you may want to try this at your next sleepover party. Stand in front of a mirror and turn off all of the lights. Pop a wintergreen-flavored Life Saver™ into your mouth and chew. Can you believe your eyes? This "lightning" phenomenon is called triboluminescence. To find out more about triboluminescence, visit http://chemistry.about.com....

Being a parent is only natural, so why not parent more naturally?
Let NFO show you how.

-----------------------------------------
"The media have become the mainstream culture in children's lives. Parents have become the alternative. Americans once expected parents to raise their children in accordance with the dominant cultural messages. Today they are expected to raise their children in opposition to it." -- Ellen Goodman, Boston Globe columnist
