I am a stay at home mum of twins, previously a scientist. I wrote a book for young kids (ages 3–7). The book has simple, graphical instructions on how to set up and play with science activities at home. It allows young children, even without reading skills to decide which science activity they want to explore & to prepare & play with the activities independently. Every science activity is linked to a QR code with an engaging Youtube video. The videos offer further insights into the activities through different types of media. Our science activities use household items only aiming for a low-cost play. The book also includes suggestions on how to extend the activities and kid-friendly scientific explanations. …

I admit it, I love Minecraft. I love how I can create my dream house, have my very own rainbow sheep farm, and ride horses to random adventures.

I loved the fast life and all that comes along with it. …

Here is how you can do it too!
