Great Job Kiddos!!!!
We are proud of you both. Keep up the great work.
What a great alternative to the regular family bonding or reading routine. The Tandem-X Rocket launch set is a sure fire way to keep everyone involved and excited about learning new things. It’s amazing to see just how curious and animated Ace gets while trying to figure out how to follow the instructions along with his dad in efforts to build something “super complicated cool” as he calls it.
Today with so many kids not being interested in math or science it is an awesome way to introduce complex sciences with out being stiffy. He is truly curious about how things can be put together and is learning fundamental theories such as relativity and Newton’s laws of motion and basic engineering.
The Tandem-X Launch Set is a great way to engage with your children while learning yourself (It’s amazing just how much fun science can be) believe me I used to be a skeptic and shut off to learning certain things but by explaining complex things in a simple and fun way, Tandem-X opens up a whole new world of fun and adventure!
What an amazing time Ace (and Colin) have with this Magic Science Kit from Scientific Explorer.
You can make your own mysterious, shimmering magic wand! You can also learn about casting spells as you mix up bubbling, color-changing, glowing potions in your very own test tube cauldron. I strongly advise adult supervision! But beware it’s for Wizards only…
Here’s a fantastic article from the National Wildlife Federation about making sure your kids are bundled up safely and the importance of going outside! Outdoor activity is vital for healthy childhood development, even in the winter. Just make sure your little one is properly clothed when enjoying the winter wonderland!

Use bits of nature to embellish animals sculpted from snow.
Place a black sheet of paper into a freezer until cold. Take outdoors and use a magnifying glass to view snowflakes that land on the paper.
If you are like us, finding fun entertaining yet educational content for a toddler can be challenging but I think sometimes if you can’t find what you are looking for then that means you have to create it!
Yes if you are looking for innovative new fun activities to do with your children, sometimes the best thing you can do is wing it. Start the conversation with your child (This works well for kids 9 and under) about a fun game or story then just go with the flow. You never know what activity can be created with just one line of a story like “It began long ago on a cold winter’s night…or The Pirate Ship had a long plank ahead staring out at a crystal blue ocean…Go ahead, I dare you to tap into your inner child and wing it.
The story could lead you to coming up with makeshift pirate costumes. Or maybe even having an astronaut puppet show with aluminum foil and Popsicle sticks. Who knows? Just put on your silly hat and let your imagination be your guide!
