The dog days of August are here. It’s hot and humid and summer sports and activities are coming to an end, which can only mean one thing: bored kids. I know that boredom is good and sparks creativity, but sometimes it’s nice to have an activity planned to break up the day.
My kids have nothing scheduled in the afternoons this week, so we’re going to do an impromptu science camp. It won’t be elaborate, well-planned or even all that time-consuming. We’ll just find a few easy projects that we can do using stuff we already have. (There will be no trips to the store to buys special ingredients.) It may be as simple as taking a walk to the park with notebooks to count how many different kinds of trees we can find. We’ll see what happens and I’ll report on what we do, beginning tomorrow!
Why not have a little science camp of your own, even just for an afternoon? There are lots of easy projects listed in my archives under chemistry, physics and biology. I’d love to hear what you tried!
