Beth’s Projects:

Comets:
Cut sponges into fourths lengthwise and tie together in the middle. Add ribbon and start dunking and tossing.

Fishy Aquarium:
Use strawberry and blueberry containers to make your fish, decorate with sharpies, place in a water-filled fishbowl with a “sinking” bead and a line of bubble wrap to keep the fish afloat.

Water Balloon Yo-Yo:
Fill a balloon 1/4 the way with water and the rest of the way with air. Tie a rubber band to the end and go-go-yo-yo.

Tie-Dye:
Dilute fruit punch mix with water, place in spray bottles and spray t-shirts outside. Allow time to dry in the sun. Wash and wear, looks cool, smells great!

Papaya Mousse:
Blend frozen papaya, vanilla ice cream, condensed milk serve with a sprig of mint.
