The heart

While studying the heart, we were instructed to used graham crackers and red and blue frosting to make a model of the heart. We had graham crackers, but, alas, the only frosting we had was left over green frosting from Christmas time. Well, we made a model by other means. Instead of using graham crackers to represent the auricles and ventricles, we used pudding cups. We added blue food coloring to vanilla pudding to show deoxygenated blood, and put some pink writing icing on top of vanilla pudding to stand in as oxygenated blood. We then used mini marshmallows to demonstrate the position of the ascending and descending aorta. This was our result:

My son’s favorite part was eating the pudding!

Dear Lord,
