Friday the kids and I worked hard getting the kitchen and dining area cleaned up. It was looking pretty good, especially for us. That afternoon Andrew had a brilliant idea. The question I posed on Facebook was "What is it about a clean kitchen that makes kids want to do science experiments?" I figured it couldn't be that bad so I helped them get started.
No mom, it won't be messy at all.
Look mom, it doesn't sink.
Sigh! Nope, no messes at all, right kids?
It took a long time to get all the cornstarch off the counters, the floor and the sink. Each time I'd wipe things down it would dry and leave a cloudy film. The kids had fun though and eventually it did all get cleaned up.
