What is your chemistry student making/doing for Mole Day? Daughter and I will be up late doing hers, I fear!

    Only thing I remember either doing were little stuffed moles dressed in outfits, with pun names -- daughter did "Mole Vaulter," I remember.

    My daughter painted Rufus, the naked mole rat from "Kim Possible", on a t-shirt for Mole Day, everyone loved it!

    Tonight we're creating "Mole-zart." The pattern pieces are sewn together but we need to add eyes and stuff it, then do a wig (gotta find something for a mole powered wig!), tri-cornered hat and sheet music. Trying to discourage Daughter from attempting a harpsicord!

    oh, missypie, your d sounds like mine. I remember asking her "was the assignment to make a box or a piano?" Trying to keep them inside the box is very hard....

    Wow. I bet the cake was wildly popular!

    (Funny that my post responding to your cake post came up first!)

    They all do t-shirts and my son made a cake and decorated it (on his own). Happy Mole Day all.

    Just realized that today is actually Mole Day. Our school has block scheduling, so classes are every other day; daughter will celebrate Mole Day tomorrow.

    DD2 used a template the teacher provided for a stuffed mole which she crowned with a Mole-hawk haircut, put in a large martini glass to make a Mole-atav cocktail.

    My son and his lab partner made a video. His lab partner wrote a song for the video. My son pretended to be a professor talking about Avogadro and Moles. Then at the end of the video there are a lot of mole pictures and posters from various mole day events. It's really cute.

    D (and I) made Sherlock Molmes complete with plaid cape and fold-up hat and a pipe. The mole is *very* soft fleece and about 2' long so I'm guessing after he comes home some older stuffy will lose a spot on her bed:)

    Years ago, D's chemistry class (well, at least some brave souls) got together for a little cake party at 6 am on "Mole Day"!

    Sorry, Kelowna, I did not see your question. Here it is:

    Celebrated annually on October 23, Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry mole.

    My daughter made a stuffed mole dubbed "Anne Moleyn" with starched, white ruffled collar, etc.
