Make the most of Hurricane weather - Earth Science for Kids!

As I was searching around the internet for fun ideas to teach my younger daughter more about Hurricanes and the recent weather here in Illinois that has been affected by them, I found this fun website that has tons of great Science Education for kids.

Ducksters Educational Site


It looks like a great place to find fun information about a variety of things including hurricanes. . .



And additionally has a huge selection of science subjects just perfect for a rainy day, or additional learning for a school project.



This is not a paid post.  I just personally found this website to be fun, informational, educational and one that I will utilize with my 9 year old for weekend or rainy day fun.  Personally I would prefer she be on educational websites like this one than playing Minecraft all day!

Wisconsin Dells Adventures, More than Water Parks! #wizard_quest #wisdells


Have you ever wanted to do something a little different as your kiddos are getting older?  Love the water park attractions but maybe just a little side adventure might be what you are looking for?  Have anyone in the family that prefers something other than "water, water, everywhere?"  I have just the experience for you!

My family and I love going to Wisconsin Dells to spend days playing in the water parks and enjoying time together (actually more time apart now that the kids all go in different directions once we find our spot at the water park.)  The thrill of the waterslides, the laziness of the lazy river, the fun of the bucket dump. . . but what about those like myself that enjoy a little water but prefer something less . . . well. . .wet?
 

My two older kiddos and I had an exciting time trying out a new adventure we had
