The sun's power

We are studying astronomy this year in science. Last weeks chapter was on the sun. For one of the experiments you are supposed to take a chocolate bar outside and melt it with a magnifying glass with the sun.
Well Peyton thought that was a little boring… so I taught him to light leaves on fire… as a side note, I think I need more supervision if I think teaching Peyton to light fires is a good idea, but at the moment it seemed like it was.
That they thought was great fun. We sat outside for a good while burning holes in leaves. Much to Peyton’s dismay (and my relief) he was unable to start any true fires.
