    Taking Toys Apart

    If I knew that giving my kids a few tools, some old toys, and permission to take the toys apart would lead to hours of engagement, I would've done it years ago. Following along with this simple book Taking Toys Apart by Kristin Fontichiaro we learned how to safely disassemble some old toy cars. From removing the outer carriage to extracting the circuit board, this highly educational activity exposed us to the inner working of circuits, motors, resistors, capacitors, switches, and overall how electricity works. The kids were super pumped about this activity and asked if we can do it again soon.

    How to Make Lego Gummies

    I find myself often surprised at how simple certain things are to make. Seriously, who knew with only 4 ingredients, you can make your own gummies.

    Lego Candy Dispenser

    If your house is anything like ours, then you have more legos than you know what to do with. Because my kids rarely reassemble the original project that the legos were purchased for, we are often on the hunt for new and creative lego instructions to make new things. We were excited to find the Lego Candy Dispenser instructions created by Sarah at Frugal Fun for Boys & Girls. A video showing how the dispenser works is located at the bottom of this post. The directions provided are really easy to follow. We did have to modify a few pieces because we did not have the exact lego blocks used…
