Puzzle is a great way of teaching and learning, isn’t it? You can prepare many puzzles to make your school age kid learn easier. Layers of earth, ocean, atmosphere or etc. I prepared this puzzle for my 6yo son. While he is making this puzzle, he asks many questions about the theme. Great fun!
I added just a little colored water to the molds and kept it 15 minutes in the freezer and then added another color of water to get another layer and put it back again to the freezer. Repeated this until all the molds were full with water yet to achieve very thin and colorful layers. After that, we melted our galaxy bars with plenty of glitter. The colors were actually much more vivid than those visuals.
Have you ever tried to make boats with straws? ⛵ We had a great sensory play with these boats a few weeks ago. It is super simple to prepare.
We made viruses from playdough and toothpicks and talked about it. How did you explain this pandemic (corona virus) to your little ones?
I think the easiest way of explaining is to embody it.
