Hey--There seems to be no shortage of good arts & crafts ideas out there on the interwebs, but can anyone recommend a good science-oriented blog for little kids? There is Candy Experiments (http://www.candyexperiments.com/ ) but if anyone has other recs I'd be grateful! I don't homeschool but I like to do little projects with DD.  :)
