Here is a great science craft to teach kids about alternative energy: a solar oven! Harnessing the power of the sun is cool and teaches us about caring for our environment and using renewable resources. Best of all, kids can make a snack they love, nachos, using the solar oven they made using this DIY. The directions are remarkably easy and you might already own all of the materials needed. It's a wonderful summer activity to do with your own kids, or in a community or classroom setting.
Printable Traffic Signs for the block area. Great way for the children to get familiar with the important signs out there in the real world. This can help with their safety when they are walking around outside.
