My little “Sid, the Science Kid(s)”!

29 Apr

Brazilian Labor Day. Long weekend – 4 days with no school, but a great opportunity to spend time in family… Here are some of the ways our children like to spend their “school-free” time: one of their favorites is playing scientists… Growing colorful crystals, creating a magic wand made out of gel… understanding water movement through a ‘diy PET bottle tornado‘! 😮

We’re very thankful for the endless possibilities of “home science fun”! Even the ‘grown-ups’ enjoy the fun of making pizza… while kids are ‘traveling through the worlds’ presented by story books… Something else to do? What about spending a couple of healthy hours at the pool?… lots to do, thankfully! But being outside is definitely, the all-time winner! A must-do, for our 3 kids! 😮

      You’re right about the ;same age’… what a piece of work… our kids are 6, 4 and almost 1.5! One has to be pretty creative to keep them entertained, focused and intrigued! A lot of work, but definitely rewarding! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your impressions! 😮

    Love the pictures, the smiles, the interest and the undivided attention. Mostly the sparkly t-shirt!
    Wonderful to see parents taking such an interest as well. Kudos.

      Thank you very much! It’s all part of the “parenting duties”, which we really try to embrace! Being a parent is not easy! But it can be extremely rewarding! One just needs to try… try… try… everyday…. 😮 Thanks for your compliments! Much appreciated!

    Fabulous pictures, and beautiful kids. They look like they are having a great time through learning (or is that learning through having a great time?)

      Oh, Alice! You see? When you ask which one is happening (learning or having fun), it’s the best hint about how great the experience is! 😮 Learning thru having fun, and having fun while learning! Great family time! 😮
