Bobbing for Apples

(43 Months)

Bobbing for apples, how hard could it be?  It turns out it's actually pretty challenging, try it.  We watched as Wild One tried biting an apple, again, and again, and again.

We tried blindfolding him and letting him use a pair of kitchen tongs. He kept peeking under the blindfold.  Wild One suggested that he didn't need a blindfold, he could just keep his eyes closed.  Do you see him peeking?

Little Miss took her turn.  She was all giggles. "Is this how we do it?" she asks, as she holds her arms behind her back.  She tries several tries and laughs that she comes up empty.  My little one is very persistent, she kept trying and trying and trying...

and then!  SHE GOT IT!  You would have sworn she won the US Open!  Aaaggghhh, yay!!!  

What a fun way to cool off, while playing a good old fashioned game of bobbing for apples.  Oh, blah blah- we hypothesized if the apple will float or sink, we counted the apples, we observed that the apples will either float upside-down or right-side up, but not on their side.  Honestly though, we only did this activity to have fun with apples.
