Checked out this gem at our local library. What surprised me is how much fun BOTH my 4 and 11 yo have had exploring the projects and experiments inside.

It's motivated them both to get outside and explore. Yesterday we walked through the woods with socks on our shoes. Then they planted the socks in soil to see what might grow.

We have four different experiments running in the house now and have plans to add more next week.
