  1. You might like my website! It’s full of easy science projects using stuff you have on hand. I also have a free iPod/iPhone/iPad app called KidScience app that lets you search for projects by ingredients, time available or age of child. Here’s the link:

    1. Liz, I have never heard of your site, so thank you for sharing. I’ll have to check it out.

      ETA: Wow, Liz there is a ton of hands-on kitchen science on your site! I’m adding a pin for it now :-)…

  2. I’m pretty close to speechless and teary-eyed. Thank you for including me in this list. The first 9 blogs (and KitchenScienceApp) have been a huge inspiration to me as we learn science in our homeschool. Thanks for introducing me to a few more via the comments section! I need all the inspiration I can get!

  3. What a great list. I’m going to add it to my resources page (sending people to your blog, of course). It’s freeing knowing *I* don’t have to be all things to all people. Each of us is good at something, so it’s OK to be terrible at others (like practical experiments). 🙂

  4. Wow! So honored to be included on this list with so many amazing bloggers. Thank you for introducing your readers to my little piece of cyberspace!
