|We used Skittles for this science observation,|
|what happens when you add warm water?|
|Turns out it makes something beautiful!|
|In our ideal city, we think a slide with bumps would be good,|
|and maybe a Great Wolf Lodge would fit in.|
|Every city needs a hotel,|
|and a train station.|
|You also need skyscrapers.|

|There is always an opportunity for building in the Ladybugs. On this occasion,|
one of our mentors was building a farm with one of our Ladybugs.
|When you're working in the home center, it's handy to have an|
order pad around in case one of your friends wants to place an order for lunch.
|Math happens informally throughout the day but at least once a day,|
math is more structured. In this case we were using dice to make equations and solve them.
|We try to do at least one science experiment and observation every week.|
In this case, the kids are learning about surface tension and how soap changes the surface
tension of milk.
|The challenge for this time with our mentors: build a structure using one 1"|
cube as the base.
