The Corona is upon us sis! What is a mama to do. Not much, that is what she is to do. Let sis conserve her energy by finding some easy, but guided, way to spend mommy and me time with her kiddos while they’re hunkering down for this shut down.

Milk & Dish Soap Experiment

All you need for this easy STEAM activity is some milk, food color and dish washing liquid. The colors are beautiful and the reaction is magical. I’ve listed a link to a free guide for the experiment below.

Quandry Online Game

This isn’t a physical experiment, but it is a virtual one. Kids get to navigate an uknown world that works like the Chronicles of Narnia. They must use their skills of selection and persuasion to see if their social experiments will save their village. My boys love this game. They finished it in about 2 weeks. Right in-time for your corona woes to be over.
