20 days of science fun

Before summer started I had this mad idea to post everyday, foolishly thinking that summer would be calmer than term time and somehow magically I’d have all this free time on my hands. It didn’t really work out how I thought, but I did post everyday for 4 weeks, so here is our Spectacular Summer of Science.

  1. I have this crazy idea that I will be more organised after they are at school and will set up lots of science fun to do, so am off to pin this. Well done and thank you very much for the inspiration
