Young Scientists Club Magic School Bus: Rides Again Science Kits

It’s safe to say my kids are obsessed with The Magic School Bus TV show. Although the original show is more than 20 years old, the magic of Netflix makes it “new” for them. Before I knew it, they had seen all of the episodes – most of them three times each. Then they discovered The Magic School Bus Rides Again, the reboot of the classic series with a modern twist (and a Netflix original series). Again, they quickly go {Read More}

MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition

My kids are BIG race car fans. They love vehicles of all kinds, but the faster and flashier, the better. Our basement/playroom is usually a mess of race tracks and various cars zooming all over the place. But it can be difficult to find sets that interact to create really long tracks. Enter the MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition, which is super cool in and of itself, but it also connects with other popular sets! You have to love toys {Read More}

Pop-Oh-Ver Playsets

Did you ever play “restaurant” as a kid? My sister and I had an assortment of pretend food, a chair and small table in the corner and a handwritten menu. We’d take turns being the guest and the chef.

I was so excited {Read More}

The Magic School Bus Science Kits: Exploring the Wonders of Nature

School has started and Labor Day is over, which I know means the unofficial end of summer, but Mother Nature is telling us otherwise! We’ve continued to have record-breaking HOT temperatures here in northeast Ohio over the past couple of weeks, so even though the pool is closed, we’re still spending a lot of time outdoors. If you’re running out of ideas for soaking up this Indian summer, you may want to check out The Magic School Bus Science Kit: {Read More}

Challenger Sports British Soccer Camps

Last winter my kids had their first experiences with soccer. They did extremely well and loved getting to know the basics of the game. When I was looking for summer experiences for the kids this year, I happened to discover the British Soccer Camps offered by Challenger Sports. I’m so happy I did! My son had a wonderful week-long experience as part of a British Soccer Camp. The instructors were incredibly helpful and friendly from the beginning. They welcomed us {Read More}

Next up: The Magic School Bus series of science kits and games. These kits do a deep dive into various scientific topics and allow kids to conduct their own experiments using the materials in the kits and common, household items. We decided to try out the Growing Crazy {Read More}

This month we had the opportunity to test another The Young Scientists Club science kit. I recently shared our experience with the magnets kit, so we were “fired up” to test out the volcanoes kit! As I shared previously, kids who join the Young Scientists Club enjoy 36 different kits that are shipped monthly or bi-monthly (your choice). The order of the kits can be customized and families can keep track of their progress through all the kits via a handy “thermometer” {Read More}

I’m 100 percent behind the home delivery trend. Clothing, groceries, skin care – so much can be ordered online now and can be customized to your preferences and schedule. As a working mom, I am so appreciative of any service that cuts out an errand and allows me to place an order in the comfort of my home, usually while sipping on a glass of wine.
