We found a plasma lamp today! And so started an awesome scientific, sensory exploration in our tent. 

Aeryn was completely fascinated. To be honest, I was, too! I love these things! I can’t wait until she’s older and we’re really into home educating to research exactly how they work together! 

The tent setting really added a fun dimension. She brought lots of her stuffed animals in to show them and found it really interesting that the plasma was attracted to her fingers and not theirs. Her scientific thinking and testing was really amazing to watch. We definitely need to do more science and sensory activities now she’s older!



Jen enjoys reading (endlessly, everything), creative writing, playing RPGs, buying from local markets, drinking coffee, drinking tea, craft projects, baking, gentle parenting, home educating and speaking in third person. She blogs about issues and ideas surrounding education, parenting, feminism, craft and various other interesting tidbits. What a wonderful word, tidbits.
