I am always in teaching mode. I search for the teachable moments in life, and look for ways to make learning fun for my girls all the time. It is just the way my quirky brain works….added to the fact that I just love to learn (it is a personal passion). In searching for activities that I thought would be fun this summer I came across Kobold Toys which has the same philosophy that I do about teaching children through fun.
One of my big focuses this past year has been science. Research shows that girls are not as directed or driven to science as boys are, and I want to make sure that both of my girls see the fun and the logic that science can be. This year we have done projects such as making a catapult, growing crystals, and learning about plants. This summer I am going to focus on Science Magic.
Over Memorial Weekend we got to spend some time with our good friends Walt and Meredith with their adorable children Kelly and Zane. We took our Science Magic Kit over there to let all the kids get involved, and below is their first experiment. Rebecca, Kelly and Zane presented us with their first experiment and Regan, Meredith and I were their captive audience. They had a lot of fun, and I look forward to seeing what else we can do with the kit.
