Solar Cooking

Thank you to my friend Esther for the day of Solar Cooking and visiting. I enjoyed meeting one of your goats, Thistle. I love her brown silky coat, I can see why my mom would love to have a goat! We had a day today with the roamschool folks making solar cookers for hot dogs in the heat, having ice races, experimenting with "tan men" and sunscreen, and making ice coolers, and mainly just playing...... The ice cooler emma made with paper plates, tape and aluminum foil, still had ice when we left four hours later and it was a hot day! A plastic cup, a styrofoam cup, black paper, a napkin, saran wrap and foil were used for the solar cooker the kids used to "warm" their fully cooked hot dog.
