Diaper Science

 
This was a really fun and simple science experiment we did this week.  We got there idea from here.
Checked out two dry diapers.

Added two and a half cups of water to see how much the diaper could absorb.

The wet diaper was a lot heavier than the dry one.

Then we cut open another unused dry diaper and removed the crystals from the cotton.

We added water and watched the cyrstals absorb water.

The crystals became jelly.

The looks on their faces tell what they thought of this experiment.

They wanted to play with the jelly longer so we went on the balcony to allow them to make more of a mess.
