Rocket man

Alien encounters with BB..

I've had Elton John stuck in my head. P's been psyched to do experiments and projects of late (as long as there aren't too many instructions or anything even slightly "teachy" going on ;) and chose to make a self-propelled rocked on Tuesday. After multiple attempts (the first rocket was too darn heavy, the second string too short etc etc) our rocket shot all the way across the playroom with a mini BB and P inside. Phoenix was thrilled and initiated countdown after countdown. After plenty of encounters on Mars, P snuggled down on the couch to explain all things alien (a recent fascination for the little man thanks to his Harold and the Purple crayon book) to his monster.
