I am delighted to announce that enough people have expressed interest in hosting and participating in an “afterschool” blog hop, and now it’s time to kick it off. This is “weekly wrap up” type of a blog hop for those of us who send their children to school and add to their learning with educational and playful activities at home. My first entry will be published on September 11, and I will switch to Tue-Thu-Sat and Sunday schedule for my blog then.
And now on to a giveaway. Jen from Chestnut Grove Academy has generously provided The Usborne Big Book of Science Things to Make and Do for a review and giveaway on my blog. As all Usborne books this is a beautifully done book with a lot of fun projects. I wish we could share at least one of the projects that we did, but this is one of the downsides of our new school-bound life – with all other activities and commitments we didn’t get around to doing anything. One slightly critical comment that I have about the book is that many projects are more craft-like and less science-like than my daughter prefers, but I wish we did more with it.
