063 - Human sundial / cola and mentos geyser/ bug viewer / moon project / egg drop

Thursday is upon us already, and soon it will be the weekend. If you feel like you've exhausted every avenue and activity with the kids this week, don't worry The Daily Kids newsletter is here to help as always. Here are your 5 daily tips, and remember, the weekend is only one day away.

  1. Human sundial is a great activity to keep the kids busy all day for little to no money, and it's a fantastic STEM activity that teaches kids about shadows and the sun's rotation. The lifelab blog has a full set of instructions.

  2. Make a cola and mentos geyser. I'm sure you don't need a full explanation on how to do this one. The kids will be thrilled. Well, I'll be honest, I'm a dad, and I still enjoy it: an oldie but a goodie.

  3. Invest in a bug viewer so you can watch the kids get up close and personal with the animals that live in their garden. Remember, don't hold them too long.

  4. Start phases of the moon project. We love this project. It's seriously adorable. All you have to do is take a picture of the moon at the same time every night for 30 days. At the end of your 30 days, your project is complete, and you and the kiddos can look back on the behaviour of the moon over the month. Simple yet exciting.

  5. Try the egg drop STEM activity. This will have their brains busy for hours. Challenge the kids to make a structure that will allow them to drop and egg to the ground. This has to be done outdoors. Education.com have you covered if you're not sure how to do the project.
