"Look Mom! It sticks!"

Fun with friction!

Felt and fleece work really well when it comes to adhering to other materials using friction alone. This is a great, quick science lesson to hypotheses about what will and won't stick vertically on things. Would the pillow stick to the wall? What about a heavier pillow? Would silky objects stick to the couch? Would silky objects stick to the wall? What if the materials were wet? Experiment and have some fun!

What can you stick to the back of your couch?

    1. It's been hard to edit and stick up our science (we've been doing quite a bit as J requests it almost weekly). This was very impromptu. We'll take what we can :-). The other stuff can wait. It's not too often that I have a cuddly infant.
