After School Linky Party (8/5)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

If you're new to the party (or my blog), check out the extraordinary ideas shared in the past by clicking here.

Some of my favorites from last week's party follow.

Kid Science: Homemade Bottle Thermometer by What Do We Do All Day?
(With a handful of household supplies, kids can make a DIY thermometer and watch as it reflects temperature changes. AWESOME!)

Umlauf Sculpture Garden at Keitha's Chaos.
(Kids can grow bored looking at art. Keitha kept the interest alive by giving her son taffy to sculpt with and asking him to mimic the poses.)

(The supply list is remarkably simple and the fun is too. I don't know a single kid that wouldn't have a blast with these water-powered DIY rockets.)

Gift of Curiosity.
(These FREE activity pages are perfect for practicing matching, sorting, sequencing, and colors!)

at Like Mama ~ Like Daughter.
(Inspired by Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed, Hannah cooked up some great fun exploring outdoors with plant rubbings and this plant diagram project.)

Chinese Toy: Tangram Puzzle at Marie's Pastiche.
(WOW. This blog post is packed with historical information, a tutorial, book recommendation, and a game about tangrams. Thanks, Marie-Claude!)

(Mary Catherine from Fun-A-Day shared these ingenious rocks. The possibilities to practice math skills is endless!)

Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational
