Science Experiments


My husband and I met in college, both pursuing mechanical engineering degrees. Little did I know, he was also a very talented artist. He actually started college in fine arts, then transferred to engineering the same year I started college. Now he dabbles in his art after his full time […]

Appearing Snowflake: A Winter Activity for Kids



Today I have the honor of introducing you to fellow STEM blogger Crystal from The Science Kiddo.  Crystal has created a quick pumpkin experiment, perfect for introducing kids to physics! I know you’ll love it! Looking for an unforgettable way to teach kids about inertia this fall? If you have […]

Levitating Pumpkin Experiment



Our home town has a fun little group that hides painted rocks around town. Our little group shares our painted rock finds on Facebook, then re-hide the little treasures for someone else to enjoy. The boys and I have always wanted to paint some rocks to hide, instead of just […]

Caramel Apple Rock Painting Fall STEM Activity


Halloween will be here before we know it! Its time to get ready for all things spooky and scary. I don’t know about you, but not much is scarier than spiders (except maybe cockroaches)! With their eight eyes and eight legs, spiders strike fear in many of us. So lets […]

16 Spider STEM Activities and Science Experiments


A friend of my mine recently found some paintballs to use for kids. They are literally gel balls filled with paint. I knew my boys would love experimenting with them, and I was right! And ever since our ice cream science experiment this summer, I’ve been trying find another science […]

Paintball Forces Science Experiment



Our family recently bought an ice cream maker. While enjoying our first batch of ice cream, we talked about what flavor we wanted to make next. My middle son said, very excitedly, “I want to make rainbow ice cream!” I started to think about ways to meet his request, and […]

How to Make Ice Cream Quicker using Heat Transfer!


Beyblades. All three of my boys are really into beyblades, even the 2 year old! In an effort to connect with my boys, I started making up beyblade science experiments. In one of the experiments, my kids and I measured the weights of the four types of beyblades. We learned […]

Angular Momentum Experiment with Beyblades!


In second grade, my oldest studied the layers of the ocean. As a fun activity at home, I thought we could bring what he learned alive by modeling the layers. As it turned out, making the layers of the ocean was also a great simple activity to teach density for […]

Making the Layers of the Ocean-A Density Activity



“Let it rip!” Anyone who plays with beyblades knows what this means. Any time all three of my boys are together, you can hear their beyblades battling after they “rip” them from their beyblade launchers. Even my two year old knows to shout “Let it rip!” My husband has even joined […]
