The kids might be back in school but there is still time to squeeze in some last minute science experiments. The girls and I made our own solar ovens! The best part about this end of summer experiment is that kids can set it up before school and see the results when they get home!
Make a fun maker space at home with your kids!
A few weeks ago, my daughter's STEM teacher had the kids make 'snow' at home with some easy kitchen ingredients. We experimented more and ended up making our own Oobleck!
We had a lot of fun doing this simple experiment at home. We pushed sharpened pencils through a bag full of water to see if it would leak!
Have a blast painting with your little chemists and learn some science in the process!

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!
What do you look for in a virtual camp for your child? I look for fun, engaging, interactive camps that allow for a little bit of individualized attention and opportunities for my child to express herself! The #CampCuriosity at Home virtual STEM camp presented by the Great Lakes Science Center was all of those things and more! My kindergartener loved all aspects of this virtual camp - the creativity, the fun, the problem solving, the socialization and the individualized attention! Read more in my blog post!
