My kids have always been fascinated by ocean animals -- probably because we hardly get to visit any large body of water since we live smack dap in the middle of the country :)
Today's activity focuses on some under-the-sea science questions that will help your kids understand the five layers of the ocean, who lives there and how light travels -- and it's one amazingly beautiful project!
Ask any child and I'll bet they tell you that one of their favorite parts of their day is read-aloud and storytime!
Listening to a book read aloud helps kids of all ages to develop better concentration and listening skills, engages their imagination, increases their vocabulary and enhances their desire to be a reader.
Today we're sharing some fun games & activities that are perfect for your next park visit. Then later in May, we'll be highlighting some of the awesome experiences your family can have during a park visit.
This fingerprinting science activity for kids is a great for a DIY spy and detective party, learning about the human body or at-home CSI idea!
My daughter is a HUGE fan of mysteries!
In fact, that's the topic of this week's book list: 15 Marvelous Mystery Books for Kids. She enjoys scouring the pages for clues and trying to come up with a solution before the story reveals it to her.
These indoor and outdoorEaster Egg Hunt ideas are sure to please kids of all ages (toddlers, preschoolers, big kids, tweens & teens) -- heck, even adults will enjoy a few of these!
I grew up in Central New York which means that snow & cold on Easter was a fairly common thing.
My Mom always let us choose special Easter outfits or wear our Spring clothes for the holiday.
But a pretty yellow dress paired with ugly black snow boots and a big, puffy coat never said “Spring” to me.
Even during a year with a late Easter, there was always the possibility of freezing temps on Easter morning and many times, snow on the ground so our Easter Egg Hunts were held inside. I had seen outdoor egg hunts on television but it was never something that happened in our neck of the woods.
When I got married and moved to a climate with a lot less snow, I quickly learned that having an outdoor Egg Hunt was a definite possibility!
