Mirror celebrity face

Alex was doing this activity for the second time and he loved it again. I have edited photos of Angelina Jolie, Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Zuckerberg and Beyonce and asked Alex to draw other sides of faces. You can see results in the photo

Experiment with raw eggs

A quick demonstration of gravity and motion in this experiment with raw eggs before we cook them for breakfast. All we needed was: a toilet paper tube, a paper plate, a glass of water and a bit of curiosity.

Simple mechanical paradox

Giant Polydron Vehicle Builders Set

It’s just great to have a giant construction set for children to spend some time building an almost real size boat or a train in the garden. But how awesome is the idea to add rotating wheels to the set?!

Flags Of The World

Easy activity with flags of the world. Alex is matching counters with flags by colours and shapes found in them. He didn’t stop until he covered every flag

Beep the Robot

Beep the Robot is a set of wooden blocks from Manhattan Toy . Each of 20 blocks has non-toxic water based finish and hidden magnets inside, making them safe and easy to stack. Alex loves playing with a little town and cars that have spinning wheels, but stacking all pieces in a robot as a puzzle makes it double fun.

Tracing shadows activity

We took advantage of a sunny day and had lots of fun tracing shadows outside

Rainbow Pebbles

36 plastic pebbles are designed in 6 colours and 6 sizes and they have a really nice feel to them. Age restriction is 3+, but Max was really into the set. With him we practised sorting by colour and size and sequencing
