Two questions:<br>
1. Are the activities good with your 3yo ds? (The same one that loves How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?)<br>
2. How did you manage to get an educator's card with B&N? From the sounds of it of the one near me, I'll have to wait until ds#1 is old enough to file an avidavit (sp?) so I have something "official" to show them ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

i have older kids AND have a card from the state that says i'm a home educator. b&n require proof of being and educator.<br><br>
the book as activities that <i>I</i> feel a 3 yr old would like (mine does) as long as you pick and choose what would be of his interest and safty i can't see why not. I saw it today (which is what reminded me to post this) for 5.98 on the childs bargin shelf...so look for it at your local one there.<br><br>
some examples from the book:<br>
an edible recipe (adjust for your families uses) to demonstrate how rocks form<br><br>
creating own "fossil"<br><br>
pebble mosaic<br><br>
volcanos (cool, fun and safe)<br><br>
a "blowing in the wind" experiment<br><br>
corn husk dolls<br><br>
garden<br><br>
wind sock<br><br>
water.<br><br>
that's sketchy, but really there's a lot. I've done several when the kids asked to do something and my 3 yr old is always involved in one way or another even if he's just watching. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
BTW for the volcano you can use lemon juice too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> i use baking soda and lemon juice to wash my produce (the kids love helping with this).
