Hobbies and Handicrafts - March 22

Hobbies and Handicrafts is a place for educators to link-up projects and hobbies the kids are working on. Developing hobbies can provide years of entertainment and help children to develop many other skills. For example, a love for sewing can improve reading skills by motivating the child to research and read patterns. My son loves science, so this week I'm featuring two simple science experiments to encourage him and other scientists in the making. Thank you all for sharing motivating projects each week.

If you haven't seen the Homeschool Help Series yet you may want to check it out. Five bloggers from around the world are working together to give their perspectives on various educational topics. Last week's topic was Daily schedule.

Tracey at We Made That introduced a fun water transfer science experiment. Connecting the colored water in the cups with paper towels it slowly mixes together. Visit We Made That for details on how to do this simple experiment.

Buggy and Buddy made their raisins dance. Find out how and if other objects will dance in this special water.

Here's the button and the featured button.
