Sneak in science learning during playtime with how to measure things.

Science can be fun, if you start early with your child they can learn to love it and the exploration of it.

How to measure nearly anything is a skill that adults often take for granted. Teaching how to measure items is a fundamental skill for any science activity and has Moms blogging in numbers about activities for their children. Sneaking in some science while having fun is what Kids Activities Blog is all about.

Moms are blogging about the latest science-based activity that introduces early science concepts to preschoolers. Using a household scale or a salad spinner can teach the young scientist basic life long skills.

The cool thing about weight and many things in science is that one can feel the concept. Children can experience it with their hands, their eyes, and their whole body. By simply setting out various size bowls, measuring cups, and spoons, the child is invited to explore and measure different substances. This easy way on learning how to measure various substances can include weighing or counting cheerios, dominos, flour, water, dirt or whatever the Mom feels the most comfortable that child should be using.

Learning how to measure with a ruler is also a basic science activity.

Kids Activities Blog is a website created by two moms (who collectively have 9 children), Rachel Miller and Holly Homer from June Cleaver Nirvana. It is their daily goal to inspire parents and teachers to play with children. This interactive website publishes simple things to do with children twice a day. Kids Activities Blog is a great tool for moms and teachers to find child-friendly activities that create memories and sneak learning into the fun.

What a great way to teach children without them knowing because it is fun. If they think it is fun then they will learn to love the act of learning. It will not be a chore, but a pleasure to learn.

If you have not visited the site check it out. For parents, grandparents, teacher or anyone just wanting to learn somethings.
