Have you seen this cute story book called Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld? It is so funny. We got it from the library today and loved it. It is an optical illusion and in the book they are arguing over whether or not it is a duck or a rabbit.
Have you ever seen this optical illusion? Do you see a duck or a rabbit?
To go along with this fun book, we did a few other Spring and Easter related projects.
Here is a fun little Spring craft that goes along perfectly with this fun theme. One side is a bunny and one side is a duck. Find the pattern for this little craft here.
Then we did an experiment with marshmallow Peeps.
What happens when you put Peeps in the microwave?
Microwaved for 20 seconds
Why does this happen?
The water molecules in the marshmallow Peep heat up and soften the sugar. Heat from the water molecules warms the air bubbles in the Peep. They expand and bounce around inside the marshmallow. Since the sugar walls are softened, these growing air molecules make the marshmallow puff up.
