Can Crusher!

James and Jimmy were watching a show called Time Warp the other night where they crushed cans with steam and ice water.....well my boys had to try it!

They filled a pot with ice and water...then they put water in the kettle, heated it up until it was steaming....they then put a diet coke can opening near the steam and let it fill with it until it was almost too hot to hold with a hot pad glove....then you hurry and put it opening down into the ice cold pot of water and it crushes the can down! Pretty cool.... Jimmy had soooo much fun that I think he did over 24 cans! Of course they couldn't stop with a can, they had to try a couple of different bottles which didn't work and even cut the top part off a can to see if it'd work, which it didn't. Awesome, fun, and exciting experiment! Big squeals every time it worked!:)
