Daily encouragements help kids learn to support themselves when the going gets tough, as well as start the day off right! Your child can pull a card from their jar every morning or whenever she needs a boost.
Each roll will designate an image on each of the three dice, which will become your story elements. Take turns telling a complete story by combining the three story pieces in any creative way you can.
In each episode of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, Xavier, Brad, and Yadina travel back in time to meet real-life historical figures when they were kids themselves. Just like the historical figures in the series, your child has heroic qualities! Help your child understand what it means to be a hero and that there is a hero in every one of us.
Use a combination of simple machines, a lever, and an axle to build a catapult, and then use the catapult to conduct a simple investigation showing that when things go up, gravity will bring them back down.
Sound waves are invisible to our eyes; unless we find a way to make the sound waves move something that we can see. In this activity, your child will use different noise-making objects to cause sound waves and make sand visibly move.
The vast ocean that surrounds us provides a great lesson in learning about density. Make a ocean zones jars so that you can clearly see the ocean layers and learn about liquid density in the process.
Astronomers, the scientists who study stars, have divided the night sky into 88 official constellations. A “constellation” is a group of stars that form a recognizable pattern when viewed from Earth. Now you can create constellations in your home – while also teaching alphabet skills!
Bridges are as diverse as the people and places they connect. Some bridges are strong enough to support the weight of cars, and some are built just for people and pets to walk across. But what determines a bridge’s strength? Investigate by constructing paper bridges and testing their weight limits with pennies.
Bring the excitement of an amusement park into your home by building a marble roller coaster. The motion of marbles as they roll down ramps is a great way to learn about the pushes and pulls that cause objects to move. In this activity, you’ll create different tracks for a marble as you and your child experiment with the forces of friction and gravity!
