Make Something: 3 Cool Sciencey Toys

… in jars

From September to June, every first Friday of the month is “Tot Discovery Day” at the Science Factory, in Eugene, OR. I am the educator at the museum who creates the Tot Day program and organizes all the activities. The program always has a different theme from month to month, so I spend a good amount of my professional time looking online for educational and fun activities that are age appropriate for 2 – 5 year old children. This can be a little tricky with some of the themes we have (try putting on an astronomy program for toddlers sometime and you’ll know what I mean). I always end up learning something new, and every now and then I discover a little gem somewhere in the blogosphere that I get really excited about, whether it’s related to that month’s theme or not. Research for this program is how I find out a lot of interesting things, actually, which goes to show that some people never really grow out of preschool.
