Before hand, blow up a balloon and write the letters Kk on it. Have the children blow up the balloon and tie it shut. The children can now see how long they can keep the balloon up in the air without letting it touch the ground. Every time they touch the balloon, the can say the letter “K”.

Film Canister Kaleidoscope

Need: 3 microscope slides, One clear film container, electrical tape, plastic wrap, a drill, and confetti, sequins or tiny beads.

Wal-mart will give you the film canisters free. The clear canisters are more difficult to obtain. I made these with 60 children. Form a triangular tube by taping 3 microscope slides together with black electrical tape. The tape should completely cover the outside of the tube. (HINT: Set my 3 slides flat on a table almost touching sides & then put tape on them. Then made a triangle). Using a pencil, make a hole in the bottom of the black film canister. If your not careful you can cause the canister to split. A drill would work better. Carefully slide the tube into the canister Cover the exposed end of the tube with a small piece of plastic wrap. You can tape it all around the tube. Place several small objects, ex. confetti, sequins, tiny beads, into the CLEAR film canister. Slide the clear canister over the exposed end of the tube. LOOK INSIDE!
