Play with Science

Science and Art: 15 Boredom Busters for Preschoolers.

It's cold! Kids spend more time inside. I've thought of rounding up some fun science play ideas for the little ones as there is so much to learn about the world around us. You will find: building and construction, dinosaurs and magnets, visiting Polar regions, Australia, a Rainforest, and some more.  You can also find last week's Kids Co-Op here: 10 Fun Ways to Say "I Love You, Daddy!"
