    Recipes and Gardening

    I love cooking healthy family-friendly foods with my kids. We also enjoy growing a raised-bed fruit and vegetable garden in our backyard together. These activites are great to do together as a family and also there are lots of opportunites to learn STEAM concepts along the way! 

    We test, create and share simple, fun, easy experiments for kids of all ages.


    We read and share our reviews of the best STEAM books for kids of all ages.
