Have you done any candy experiments with your kids yet? I highly recommend it! This post sharing some of our favorite candy experiments was my second most popular in 2014 with 82,711 views. Blog posts are only as successful as the people reading them make them, and a large piece of this blog post’s success comes from it being featured in this Buzzfeed post. If you love a blog post, an easy way to thank the author is by sharing the link, either in an email to a friend or on social media. I don’t have a direct link to any Buzzfeed authors, so I probably owe my thanks for this feature to a reader who shared the post where Buzzfeed saw it! Thank you!
More Science Fun for Kids
If you like candy experiments, be sure to check out our gummy experiment using gummies with natural and artificial dyes! I can also recommend Loralee Leavitt’s Candy Experiments book (affiliate link). If you are looking for more fun science for kids, I wrote a couple chapters for this ebook (not free, but very affordable; also an affiliate link), and I can tell you that it is full of very fun math and science activities for kids.
PragmaticMom’s Second Most Popular Post in 2014
Mia’s second most popular post in 2014 was this Summer Reading Lists for Middle School Kids. I have several of Mia’s posts bookmarked to come back to for recommendations as my kids grow older!
I think that middle school is a great time to get kids into historical fiction, and Mia has a Pinterest board full of the best historical fiction for kids.
After School Activities Linky
Most of the after school activities that were linked up last week were Christmas related, but I thought that this post from Sugar Aunts was a fun way to practice punctuation – for all ages!
I hope you will share your after school learning and fun below! When you link up you give me and the other linky hosts permission to feature your post and to pin it to our After School Activities board on Pinterest. Thanks!
