snap circuits…

On our weekends, we like to do things together, for enrichment as well as entertainment. The Historian played some of her Harry Potter video game today, and was happily chirping away to herself for an hour, while mindlessly switching between characters and earning coins and trophies. A photo of her glazed-eyed in front of the telly would be pretty pointless, so instead the camera came out this evening while learning about electricity. This is a Snap Circuit set, and has provided hours of learning and play. The Historian is also learning troubleshooting and all about short circuits, and how they drain batteries and can damage components. My uncle is an electrician with the Army Corps of Engineers, and I always meant to expose her to circuitry sooner. I love this companies’ many sets, as they are independent and practical with their approach, and every lesson has a project you build. The result was as expected; another lesson learned under the title of “play time”…  Yes ! Score one for the mumma ! =)

Dinner was quite late, and therefore, an easy meal. A large mixed-greens salad with seeds and dried fruit, a greek yogurt, and 1/2 of a beautiful wrap. It was filled with beans, rice, veggies, cheese and a touch of beef. My foxling ate it up quick as a wink ! =)  As The Professor’s next semester start date looms closer, we are having as much fun as we can pack into our days, to tide us over for the long winter ahead. What do you like to do with your weekend free time ?
