Sometimes, I get an idea in my head, and I just can't get rid of it until I do something with it. It is my very own, super special brand of crazy. A few weeks ago, I was chatting on Skype with Heather, as I sometimes do late in the evenings when I'm trying to avoid doing less fun, more productive stuff. And, I was telling her about his idea that I had, but that I really had no time to work on. "You should totally do it" she said. A couple of days later, I was talking on the phone to Dawn, and again, I mentioned that I had this thing that I really wanted to do, but that I didn't think I could really pull it off considering that the baby completely stopped sleeping about a month ago, meaning that we are wholly without sanity around these parts. So, I was setting the idea aside for the time being. Maybe next summer.
Fast forward a bit, and here I am, telling you all about The Summer Science Special, a science-themed mini-issue of Alphabet Glue. It would seem that I just couldn't help myself afterall. Plus, when I mentioned that I wanted to do a special issue wholly dedicated to science, Mariam turned out to be remarkably enthusiastic and ended up helping me with pretty much every step of the process. She even took some of the photos for the tutorials herself this time around.
Inside The Summer Science Special you will find a small collection of classic science projects perfect for bringing just the right amount of busy to summer afternoons, when the young folk around your house might be feeling just a little restless or in need of something fun to do. And don't fret dear Southern Hemisphere friends- I think that you'll find that the activities in this issue work equally well in the winter! You can find out all about The Summer Science Special and download a copy of your very own (just $2.50!) here.
