Preschool Corner–Camping Theme

I am catching up on school posts.. so bear with me this is an old one!  We did a camping theme in September.. we hoped to cap of the theme with a trip camping.. we unfortunately got a ton of rain.. followed by some really busy weekends!   So with out further ado here are the things we got into that week;

We had some fun experimenting with surface tension.  The paper boat was floating on the water.  When we dipped our kabob stick into dish soap then put it towards the back of the boat the boat shot across the water.  Sammy didn’t understand why but found it to be a lot of fun (all we are going for):

He liked this so much we made several boats and experimented with wear to put the soap and what it did to the boat.  This one spun around in circles:
