This game about Moments, which J coined "Boom Box," turns out to be pretty fun.
I like to think of Moments as "What can you tip?" The basic science behind this game is:
Moment = force x distance
Ultimately, the force applied at a distance rotates the object.
J taught me this lesson in moments upon climbing into the diaper box. I figured to let him experiment but that I'd be there for spotting and encouragement.
Some fun things to try:
*Stand on your knees and push on the box.
*Stand up and push on the box (this changes the distance of the center of mass - the force - to axis of rotation)
*Try to rotate about long side of the box. Is it the same or different as rotating over the short edge?
*Can you balance on the edge of the box?
Note, J was not harmed in his experiments. Luckily, we have soft carpet. I learned to start the camera, and then place J in the box. This required a little more editing on my end.
