Rocket Man

The other day D decided it was time to have some fun so he brought out this water rocket he’d bought. The kids had such fun with it and took turns working the pump, and the trigger. If they were a little older I could have included this in the science category too, as it’s a great lesson in water displacement and pressure and whatever else….as you can see I’d need the science refresher at the same time. Fortunately D is good at that kind of stuff, which is why I’m so glad he’s around to show the kids such cool stuff!

They experimented with using more or less water, and more or less pressure, and we had a few land on the roof to the general delight of the children (and Dad), especially B3.
