Thursday's Thing to Do: Electricity

We all love discovering new things.  Here's a simple one you and your kids will love.
All you need is a bandaid wrapper(You should have plenty of those will all the skinned knees around your home.)
  1. Put the bandaid wrapper back together after you've taken out the bandaid.  (most bandaid wrappers are two pieces that pull apart and have a sticky film on the sides that face each other.  you need this kind of bandaid wrapper.)
  2. Go into a completely dark closet or room. 
  3. Pull the wrapper apart really fast. 
  4. You'll see a small bright line of blue light.
Kids will do this for a very long time. 
Yet another reason for kids to LOVE bandaids!

I couldn't get it to work. Do you know if you need a certain brand of bandaide? I tried 2 different kinds.
