Magic Science with The Young Scientists Club


My four year old is a huge science fan already. He is always “doing a spearmint” as he calls it. He even got a telescope and microscope for his birthday because he likes looking in depth at things. I think it amazing that he shows such an interest this early and since it was always one of my favorite subjects, I do everything I can to encourage it! He recently received a Magic Science kit from The Young Scientists Club to review and I think he would sleep with the set if I’d let him! The Young Scientists Club has a really amazing line of products that he is always excited to check out. The minute he saw the box come in, he wanted to do every experiment in the book. The magic Science kit comes with rainbow glasses, measuring cup, test tube, bottle connector, screen, sponges, mirrors, a lab tray, a … read more

I am also very ticklish so sadly, i have never had a pedicure. I think I would likely kick the poor lady if she messed with my feet! So, it is up to me to handle my own feet. I am SO HAPPY to have had the chance to review CareMe Electric Callus Remover. You have no idea! This thing is amazing. (just ask my friends. I was raving on … read more
