Did you guess how Lizzie blew up the glove?
Watch the video below to see if you were correct!
What? Why? How?
Children need to e challenged not spoon-fed with facts!
They need to question. To predict. To investigate. This is the first of a series of challenges for children. They are suitable for children from about four years upwards. Children learn by ‘doing’ and all the challenges are simple enough for them to perform themselves with adult supervision.
This first challenge is all about floating and density.
The first video shows the challenge.
The second video repeats the investigation and then answers the questions.
My suggestion is that you watch the first video then perform the challenge asking the questions
Later the second video giving the solutions can be watched.
The small battery powered type can be used to make fun Cloud Lamps.
It’s an easy and fun craft activity your children will enjoy sharing with you.
Questions often asked by young children are ‘What are clouds? How are they made? What do they feel like?’
Well, Lizzie Witch is very good at catching clouds!
She is also very good at answering those tricky questions.

These are really fun to make and introduce the concept of ‘melting’ to children.
The technique also improves coordination.
All you need is a small Canvas board, a pack of crayons. Some glue and a hairdryer.
The fun video featuring Lizzie Witch attempting to melt the crayons is sure to motivate children to ‘have a go!’
Adult supervision and help is needed .

Halloween is only a month away and it’s never too early to start preparing AND it’s fun!
Make this cute spider for virtually nothing …. it’s made from a small section of a pair of black tights so you could make enough for a class of kids from one pair of tights. You do need to use the thick 80% denier tights because the stuffing will show through the finer variety. It took me twenty minutes to make and it can be easily made by a child with supervision.
2. Put an elastic band around the centre of the four pipe cleaners and then pass through the piece of tights.
8. That’s it!
What IS a cloud? Where do they come from? What do they feel like? Can you sit on one? Can you catch one ?
Children ask lots of difficult questions!
Often they require more than just a verbal answer and that’s when Lizzie Witch comes to the rescue! The Lizzie Witch Science Programmes explain the most complicated of scientific concepts with easy-to-understand and fun presentations. They motivate children to ask even more questions, to investigate the world around them and, I hope, to develop a love of science!
In this programme Lizzie explores the subject of ‘clouds’
