Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

Oh, great. Another website to go broke on.

I'll admit that one of the more challenging subjects to homeschool well is science. Even if you have a terrific text (we do), even if you visit the library for supplementals/rabbit trails (we do), even if you have a membership to and visit local science museums (we do), even if your kids have a natural curiosity (they do)... it's the experiments. The hands-on stuff. Let's be honest--the fun, interesting stuff. It's one thing to take advantage of observing a dead squirrel that lost to someone's front bumper; it's another to get hold of owl pellets. Ants and worms are easy to find and observe, and we've found a praying mantis on our window unit one summer day. But mealworms? Not so much.
So... there's this place. No, this is not a paid post; I don't get paid for blogging which is why it happens when I feel like it. Just check this one page out for the young set--pre-K to second grade. Rachel would love the flower book; Dale would treasure the bug set. Poke around some more. It's like Science Geek Heaven.

Yeah. Like Amazon. "Oh, that would be so cool!"

Yep. Already spent a lot of money there . . . because dissection is COOL!

Welcome to the website where I get our Vinnie's birthday and Christmas presents. He LOVES the stuff from Home Science Tools! I do too!
