Science Kits and Giveaway Time!

I never thought I’d hear myself say “let’s do some school in the summer” but those words have slipped out of my mouth and the kids are all game for it. We’re planning on focusing more on science over the summer months since the bugs are crawling everywhere and the weather tends to cooperate more with us. It’s most definitely the time to get outside and enjoy so many different aspects of nature! And when the weather gets too hot ~ it will be a great time to do experiments together and learn in a different way.

You’re probably wondering about that giveaway I mentioned, aren’t you?

AllChildrensFurniture.com contacted me recently about hosting a giveaway on my blog. From their name I assumed that their site was only about children’s furniture.

I was so wrong.

Over the last few days I have had much fun browsing their site full of kids furniture, kid’s decor ideas, outdoor play items, doll houses, art supplies and wishing I had all the money in the world to start stocking up on games and learning toys for next year’s school time.

AllChildrensFurniture carries a wide range of products and has some great search features to help find items based on age ranges, price ranges, brands, and more. I’ve been searching through all of their art items, science kits, wooden toys and finally came up with two choices for you {and secretly I am wanting to get my hands on both of these kits for some fun this summer!}.

Are you ready for your choices? Here they are!

Wind Power Science Kit {ages 8 and up}

With the Wind Power kit your children can build a working wind turbine with an electric generator, rotors and a wind speed indicator. The kit also includes over 20 experiments to go along with the turbine. In our school time this would be great since some of our family lives near a wind farm and we’ve been able to see the turbines up close.

Physics Workshop Science Kit
{ages 8 and up}

The Physics Discovery kit include materials to build 12 models and help children learn about forces and simple machines ~ demonstrating concepts like levers, pulleys, centrifugal forces and gears. I know our kids would have a blast putting these together and hand-on experiments/models make science come alive!

The rules {’cause there have to be some}:

If you would like to enter to win, here are the ways to earn up to three entries:

  1. Head over to AllChildrensFurniture.com, find something you like, and come back here and tell me about it.
  2. Twitter about this contest and then come back to leave an additional comment
  3. Let your friends through facebook or your blog ~ come back to leave an additional comment

The giveaway is open until Friday, June 5th at 8pm and is only open to residents in the continental US. A winner will be chosen at random and I will announce the winner next Monday, June 8th. Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you {i.e. blog address or email}. The winner will have 3 days to contact me with their choice of science kits and shipping information. If I haven’t heard back within 3 days, I will draw another winner.

**** This giveaway is now closed****


Just wanted to pass along a little something that would be a great idea for Mom I’m bored! @ WFMW!

Thanks so much to AllChildrensFurniture.com for being gracious enough to sponsor the giveaway!
