Jupiter.. and its Big Red Spot!!, The craft:
Make a hurricane!..It was really fun... they could have spent hours turning it over and over and over again racing with each other to see which one wins. And they are very excited every time we get together to learn Astronomy, which is good, because S. wants to be an Astronaut and M an Astronomer!...

The Mars project was really fun. They had to create an artificial ecosystem to be able to live in. All they had to work with, were boxes, masking tape, aluminum foil, and plastic containers... and this is what they made with their friends!!.They are covering their mouths, because they are outside and there is NO OXYGEN!!. It has solar panels and windows to look out into space! ,and it is REALLY big!!!.. it takes over my basement!
Here is a picture of the cake from the baby shower.... it is a basket with baby stuff "inside". It turned out to be amazing!. The daughter of a friend came to decorate it... I loved it so much.. I can't wait to decorate one on my own! The centre of the table, has a real basket (not edible) filled with small blue balloons and baby toys inside. The punch bowl, had the "special baby shower punch" with ice cream and a baby duck floating (it looked like a baby bath).. It was really cute!.
