Science Invitation

Sweet Pea, my 3 year old preschooler, is taking an interest in science, but in his own time. I’m fine with that, but sometimes put a little invitation out there and see what he does with it.

On a nature walk this summer we discovered a feather and butterfly wings. We talked about exploring them more closely when we got home, but of course he was more interested in something else! A few days later I simply set a magnifying glass with the feather and wings on a tray on the table.

Just seeing them as he ran by interested Sweet Pea enough to come screeching to a halt and examine them!

Sometimes it’s all in the invitation…where can be seen….just that it’s there to spark their interest.
