Cam and I worked on a science experiment today! We made our pennies shiny. First I had him go through our money jar and pick out some pennies. Every penny he would pick, he would say, "is this one?" for EVERY penny he found. We mixed 2 Tbsp. vinegar with 2 tsp. salt and put our "dirty" pennies in and mixed them around. Cameron had a fun time doing this.
He didn't understand the whole concept but thought it was cool how they got "clean".

After we "cleaned" our pennies, he decided that he was gong to hide them and I had to find them. He would tell me "Abra-cadabra" and I would have to guess which container the pennies were under. As you can see by the look on his face, he thought he was pretty tricky!
