Other times, it all just goes to hell. That's how I've ended up with a number of (entire, exhaustive series of!) photos for blog posts that never materialized, because the activity didn't turn out as planned/hoped/expected. For example:
|Yarn "Easter baskets". Kids use a LOT of glue. These never really stiffened. Even when fully dry, they were limp and unsuitable even for display empty. Very disappointing.|
|I thought "egg in a hole" would be a lot more fun if we used shaped cookie cutters.|
Too bad the volume of the egg surpassed the area of the shape. We ended up with blobs.
And our most recent...
|Solar oven experiment. It totally didn't work.|
In other words, there are plenty of activities that don't make the papers because they weren't "wins". I'm trying to take consolation from these words:
Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Well, our enthusiasm is intact. As is our optimism. We'll be back to try more crazy adventures...and maybe from here on out I won't be so self-conscious as to not share them. After all, they are learning experiences too!
