Holiday Math: Snowflakes, Starflakes, and Swirlflakes

We are big Vi Hart fans over here so this fun little video on making unusual paper snowflakes make us very happy this holiday season.

Coffee Filter Snowflakes



Coffee filters make the best snowflakes. They are already round and symmetrical. Simply fold in half, then in thirds, and then in half again. And I like their translucent nature.



The only downside is you really have to figure out a way to flatten them. You could iron them I suppose. We pressed them between our heaviest books overnight. That seemed to do the trick.

St. Nicholas Day 2014

Spud wasn't keeping track so this year's St. Nicholas day was a big surprise! St. Nick must have grabbed his shoes for him. This morning he found them filled with goodies outside his bedroom door.

Our First Time Lapse: Niagara Falls, Lit Up

TRAVELS WITH KID  |  NIAGARA FALLS



We propped up our little iPhone on the window sill of our hotel around 4 pm and let it shoot periodically, using a time lapse app, until the lights went out at midnight. We ended up with 4 minutes of moving mist and colour. Looking forward to making more time lapse movies with the kid!
