Here's a fun way to explore shapes with your young child! Become a shape detective!
Do you have a leftover Jack-O-Lantern at home? Let your future chemist or biologist perform an experiment before you trash it! We recently made our spooky Jack-O-Lantern's foam from the mouth and the kids LOVED it. If you want to try this at home, here is what we did! What you need: - 1 cup… Continue reading Foaming JACK-O’-LANTERN Experiment

Do you have lots of crayons that need to be recycled? You can recycle them yourself in a fun new useable shape! Crayons are made out of paraffin wax. When heated, the wax reaches its melting point and melts into the new shape of the mold you choose. Once they harden... ta da! A new crayon shape!
We love crayons in our home and use them daily! We have been collecting our broken crayons for several months and we decided to use them for some fun STEAM projects at home. One of our recent projects was inspired by the book in my Reading STEMs Learning Series entitled, 'The Crayon Man'. We created these fun STEAM sun catchers with crayon shavings and wax paper!
Challenge your little process engineer to separate materials from a heterogeneous mixture without using their hands! They make a fun craft at the end!
