Our snow returned this morning, or at least a few flakes. The little ones wanted to go out to play. As I snatched our handheld microscope, to turn playtime into science, I thought again, what great gadgets they are.
If your looking for a stocking stuffer, or inexpensive gift (the 30x magnification type usually sell for under $10), for anyone from age 3 to adult, this is the way to go. Not only are they educational, they are just a lot of fun. If you've never seen a snowflake melting, at a 30x magnification, you don't know what your missing.
And, just for the record, this is simply a mom to mom suggestion. I'm not being paid for my opinion.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
