When my kids were young and I was a stay-at-home parent, we did a lot of experiments. They loved exploring the world by making any kind of mixture, and sometimes I helped channel that by planning out a mixture that would actually react. It was sometimes messy, but always fun! I found this post on Babble that links 10 different science experiments to do. They're not all just for Halloween, like my favorite slime recipe from Our Best Bites, but the abundance of pumpkins makes them a lot eaiser.
My kids and I have not had time to make it to the new movie, The Boxtrolls, yet. Although we have not seen the movie, the kids love playing the new app The Boxtrolls: Slide 'N' Sneak, based on the movie. Kids select their Boxtroll and race through over 30 levels with obsticles and traps to try to collect gears and unlock new levels and equipment. The graphics are top rate and kids can even watch the trailer to the film. Whether a child has seen the movie, or hasn't made it yet, they will have fun racing Boxtrolls in this FREE app!
Well, I did it. I updated both my iPhone 5c and my iPad to iOS 8 tonight. I know, everyone says you're supposed to wait, but I have the patience of a two-year-old most of the time.
It caused me a little bit of angst when I saw that I needed almost 5GB of data to update to the new software. A picture-loving, app-using girl like me just doesn't have that kind of room on her device. I totally wish I would have known this sneaky tidbit before I had to purge some pictures and move some beloved apps to the iCloud.
If you have been following us or our sister site, Smart Apps for Kids, then you know our love for all the Dr. Panda apps. We get all giggly and happy whenever a new app is released. Heather H. recently reviewed the latest release of Dr. Panda and Toto's Treehouse and gave it a resounding 4.5 stars. I may have cheered and woken up my dog when I saw that this top app is now available for Android users! If you have a young child (and I would still count my 8 year old in this category, as she LOVES these apps still), then you have to check this app out!
