Science Fair or Not to Science Fair? That Is The Question!

We have a chance to join in the science fair happening in early June. My 6 year old daughter has decided just now that she would like to do something for the fair. I was thinking on exploring why she has allergies so bad. I am not sure what to do though. I was thinking of placing some wax paper outside and some inside the house with petroleum jelly on it. The jelly would catch whatever is in the air and collect the samples for us. Then we will compare it to what the allergy report states for the day. We could research how allergies affect your body and do a diagram for the poster board. Does this sound like I am going in the right direction? What are your thoughts?

Thanks Homeschooling Mamas!

 That sound like a good idea.  I have allergies too, so this would be interesting  to hear what you turned up.  :)

Thanks everyone! I have finally decided to allow her to do the project. So now it's time to pick out a idea. I like this idea but not sure if it will work or not since I just kinda made it up myself. I did find some great books such as MythBusters Science Fair Book and TIME For Kids Big Book of Science Fair Ideas. Thinking of doing a hand washing experiment. Something else my daughter needs to work on. :P
