Summer is half over here…. We are always looking for things to do that are fun…  My little one really doesn’t like to leave the house much, so anIMG_4768 y activities we can do at home are even better.

This summer we’ve added Tinker Crate to our list!  It’s a subscription service and has an activity each month as well as some learning activities.  This month includes a lava lamp, last month we got to build a levitating pencil holder.  We learned all about magnets, their poles, attraction, and More!IMG_4759

The kit came with a magazine with other activities to try, an instruction sheet with directions and the parts for the levitating pencil holder.  The age range really started at 9 for the kit we were building but my little one – 7 years old, got a lot out of it!

This was a great way to extend the science from the school year.  Kiwi Crate has younger crates as well as a Doodle Crate that I’m looking at signing up for.  There is even a koala crate for ages 3 to 4 years old!

I can’t wait to try our lava lamp!
