Playing With Fire!

Our Sunday morning....


Today, Christian worked some magic over a flame.

He got a Chemistry experiment book for Christmas...and today he regaled us with what happens when you put different types of sulfate over an open flame.

I totally need a better camera.



The flames turned blue, green and red, depeding on what type of sulfate he used.

It was pretty awesome.

Here are a couple of videos...wish they showed the color better...
