Are you looking for some fun activities to keep your kids busy this summer? My children love science experiments, but we can never find to do them during our regular school year since we are always so busy.
Summer time is a great time to tackle science experiments and fun hands – on activities. I enjoy finding themed activities to the seasons we are in. Summer time means lots of time at beaches and lakes during the hot weather. What better time than to do science activities and experiments that use sand?
