Backyard Laboratories opened yesterday afternoon for nine crazy, wacky boys. After securing their security badges and goggles, they accessed entry through the sanitizing area. Along with Professor Poly Mer, we experimented with hot and cold air, made slime with molecules that didn't cooperate when being shoved into test tubes, and had a blast making grenades with acid and sodium bicarbonate. Phew! The boys enjoyed all the green candy they desired paired with concoctions of their making to drink. We celebrated El Fuego's 8th birthday with a volcano cake and a good ole' fashioned game of red rover.
