Wordless Wednesday – Jelly Stained Glass Stickers

June 20, 2012 Materials
Thumbnail image for Wordless Wednesday – Jelly Stained Glass Stickers

A while ago we made stained glass stickers using jelly. We gave them several days to dry, then they came up beautifully and we put them on several windows. You can see here how the jelly is crystalising as it dries further, this is bleaching the colours so they won’t last forever. While they last […]

Wordless Wednesday – 7 Super Shots

June 13, 2012 Earth and Beyond

A couple of weeks ago Penny from Wildlife Fun 4 Kids tagged me in 7 Super Shots. I’m not much of a meme girl, but I do like using photos and they’re different prompts to my normal. Plus it was fun going through my thousands of photos, the difficulty was in whittling it down to […]

In my first science live blogging/tweeting/instagramming event I’m attempting to cover today’s transit of Venus. As I get photos I will be adding them here, plus you can follow my tweets. For a slightly more exciting version, I’ve also embedded a video from a live feed from the Exploratorium, but you need Flash to see […]

To mix it you draw  with the chalk then you get the water and put some on the chalk and then get your chalk and draw over the water. I’m not certain why I only have a couple of […]

It has come to my attention that some people think I can grow plants. In reality, I have a black thumb. I can germinate them, but then they always die, or go mouldy, or are blown away in a cyclone (seriously!) or are otherwise stunted and sickly. So here I am very proudly showing off […]

We were outside on Sunday night so I grabbed the camera and got some shots of the spectacular moon rising. I didn’t grab the tripod, so sorry for the fuzziness. This is an actual photo, not a white dot on a cheap graphics program. I need to learn about using the camera on manual if […]

This is actually very simple, there’s no trick. Just a little bit of salt and a steady hand. The girls tried it with other things to help too.

Sometimes we all feel the need for pretty pictures, which is generally when I head over to NASA. The colours and images and thought of peering into the past are fascinating and soothing. And last night I saw something I’d never even heard of before. I don’t know many details of astronomy, but at least […]
