Easter gone wrong....

We don't do a whole lot for Easter around here. Both of our families live quite a distance away. The closest relative is an 8 hour drive. For the last few years we have tie dyed shirts on Easter. An odd tradition but it is fun. We dye the shirts with Mickey Mouse's head on them. Really cool. It is a shirt for our Disney vacation which usually happens in May so it is a good way to get excited for the trip. This year this is no Disney trip. We are visiting family instead. So, for our Easter fun project we are going to torture Peeps in the name of science. We are going to set them on fire, put them in the microwave and see what happens when you put one in a vacuum. I have a vacuum sealer and a vacuum container. Sometimes, homeschooling can be so much fun!! But even if you don't homeschool, it is a fun project to do with the kids. I hope everyone has a good Easter.

And Oh my, you definantly had a different kind of Easter. Torturing peeps does sound fun though, and I'm sure your kids enjoyed it!
