Blood and Guts: Digestive Juices


If you want to make Mrs. Darby turn green and almost lose her breakfast, THIS is how to do it.  Even just THINKING about this makes me a little light-headed, so this is going to be a short post!

First, I had the kids chew on a saltine cracker.  This part didn’t gross me out.  It’s See-Food!  Didn’t your family ever play this at the table??



Here’s where things turn badly…

I had them put 10 saltine crackers in a Ziploc bag.  Then, we added water, closed the bag, and… churned.


I had to open a window, and breath in that crisp, cold, fall air.  Breath in, breath out, Mrs. Darby, for the worst has not yet come to pass:  the eyeball.
