STEAM: Making Moon Craters

This month our learning box from Experience Early Learning has transformed us into Space Explorers, and you know that means we have to blast off to the moon! The moon is something that has always fascinated my children. They see it sometimes during the day, most of the time at night; it changes its shape, color and size! What's not to wonder about the moon?! As an Experience Early Learning...

There were quite a few muddy brown looking shirts because kids got too happy with using ALL the colors. 2. Use the rubber bands and only place dye in a...
