DIY Solar System Glow-in-the-Dark Kit

Space is the ultimate frontier, and my kids are constantly asking me questions about this amazing thing that they think must only float above the sky in the dark of night. We have talked a lot about the Solar System recently and we have started to learn a bit more about the world around us. My kids love to learn and they love to do hands-on activities that give them real-world experiences. They have been very inquisitive recently about the way that the Solar System works and where it goes during the day. My husband and I have decided that...

Seashell Painting

Are you looking for some simple and fun summer crafts to do at home with your kids? I love simple activities that allow the kids to be creative and have fun without getting bogged down with too many rules and restrictions.

So much of our kids' lives are spent in a classroom behind a desk. Then they get to grow up and be behind a desk some more. Summer is...
