5 Cool Science Experiments for Kids

Bring more science to your every day learning!  Here are 5 fun and easy science experiments for kids to make.  We have the kids watch the videos, gather the supplies, set up their science experiment station, do the experiment and then clean up! Great for children in grade school and up.

A special thanks to YouTube Kids for sending us a Hoopla Kidz Lab kids care package. We try to have at least one day every week were we do science experiments after school.  It is something the kids and I really look forward to. Affiliate links are used in this article.

Note for teachers: all videos do contain adds. You can start the videos prior to your lesson and pause to eliminate commercials in your classroom.

After School Activities for Kids {Week 41}

One thing I've observed this time of year is the need for volunteers at school.  Have you signed up to help at your child's school this year? Usually over the years I've seen many Fall Festivals planned for fundraising and even Running Events.  Plus at the end of the month there is a need for Halloween Party  Plans with your child's teacher.  These are the moments that it's time to find those windows of time to get into the school and help out.   We use facebook groups to communicate at my daughter's school.  However online programs like Volunteer Spot can make signing up for volunteering for events super easy. What system does your child's school use?

Florida PrePaid Open Enrollment is HERE!

Preparing your child for college as a parent can be quite a challenge.  Where do you send them? How to support their studies to prepare? What test scores do they need to get accepted? One of the biggest worries is how will they pay for it?  My son recently graduated from college this spring and I have to say we're thrilled he is a college graduate who is debt free from tuition.  

Here's how you can do it too.

Halloween Tinker Crate Review

Here at the Educators' Spin On It, we LOVE to tinker around. As a former classroom teacher, now write-at-home mom, I am always looking for ways to enrich my child's afterschool learning.  I know that our kids are not getting enough hands-on math, science, and engineering during the school day. As a parent, it's my job to find ways to support my kids learning after school.   This week, we were fortunate to receive one of the first Halloween Tinker Crates to share with you!!! My kids were over-the-moon excited to make and play with this project - THANK YOU TINKER CRATES!!! ~ Affiliate links in this article.

Can you tell I'm excited?
