Preschool science for curious little minds...
I've often been asked for science activities and resources for preschool kids. Finally, I've decided to pool some of our favorite activities and resources together for parents of preschool and kindergarten age kids.

Kat and I first began our adventures in learning together when she was 3 years old. This gave me a wonderful opportunity to really show her the many things that I love about the world. What I didn't expect was that I too, would begin to learn more than I ever thought possible, and that this would brighten my life in so many ways!
The wonderful thing about young kids is that everything is new and exciting! Kids want to know more about the world and are excited to be active participants in it. They want to stick their feet in mud puddles and squish their toes around in it. They want to pick up the ladybug crawling on the ground and take a closer look. Kids are natural explorers and they do a great job of finding things to be interested in (even if it's something they're not supposed to be getting into!). The wonderful thing about this is that every time you go outside, you're presented with a wonderful opportunity to teach your kids about the world and how to care for it.
