Family Game Night with the Osmo Genius Starter Kit | STEAM Toy Review

We are huge Osmo fans at my house, as you probably know by now from my previous posts about The Math Wizard and The Secrets of the Dragons and the Coding Starter Kit. We were gifted the Osmo Genius Starter Kit to play with and share with you for the holiday season. We had so much fun using the...

Make Vanilla Bean Yogurt in the Instant Pot | Healthy Family-Friendly Recipe

I've been making homemade yogurt in my Instant Pot weekly for a few years now - ever since I first got my Instant Pot and saw it had a yogurt feature. My mom used to make yogurt when I was a kid, but she had to make it in the oven. It is so much easier in the Instant Pot! I have spent the last few...

Halloween Candy Color Diffusion | STEAM Activity for Kids

If you're anything like us, you still have lots of candy sitting around your house from Halloween. This is a perfect way to use up some of the extra Skittles and M&Ms your kids collected. My kids had so much fun with this experiment that they wanted to do it again, and again, and again. Which...

Candy Corn Halloween Experiment | STEAM Activity for Kids

Virtual school for my first grader son has its challenges, but it has some perks too. I am loving the extra time at home with my kids. We are usually able to finish up his afternoon activities a lot quicker than the time allotted for the class, so we have extra time to play, or do fun activities....

I am Anne Frank (Ordinary People Change the World) | STEAM Children’s Book Review

He was on the front lines of combat, where he was wounded by shrapnel, and he also wrote and published...

I am Benjamin Franklin (Ordinary People Change the World) | STEAM Children’s Book Review

Last year I shared a blog post about how my kids and I are fans of the Ordinary People Change the World book series by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos. This is the book series that inspired Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum on PBS Kids. I really appreciate how these books...

Tie-Dye T-Shirts | STEAM Activity for Kids

I am so excited that tie-dye is coming back in fashion. I love bright colors, so for me the more colors the better for my tie-dye t-shirts. And tie-dye is even more fun to wear when you make the t-shirt yourself! We had so much fun with this activity that my kids immediately told me they wanted to...

Letters From Space by Retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson | STEAM Children’s Book Review

My kids have always been fascinated by space. Shortly after we moved to Houston we visited Space Center Houston.
