Showing posts with label learning for tweens

For most families, spring break has come and gone in a blink. This March looks vastly different than last year where spring break vacations and camps were the norm. Today, I’m welcoming a guest post from the American Camp Association on their virtual camps starting this week. I hope you'll find this list of ten free ACA virtual camps helpful. All camps listed below are available to join and enjoy immediately.

Ten Free ACA Virtual Camps for Kids:

The moon has called to us from above for ages. Not only is it a celestial marvel to look at it, is necessary to us mere mortals here on earth. I've looked up into the night sky to find constellations and admire the moon since I was a kid and I've passed my love of the night sky onto my daughters. We have a telescope and try using it as often as possible. If you'd like to help your kids say I see the moon in a whole new and exciting way, check out this great STEM learning box offer from Groovy Labs.
