If there is one thing I know about kids, it’s that they love having fun. Not only do they love having fun, but they love to learn AND have fun at the same time. That’s why I started a hunt for science games.
My kids love all things science (there is literally a science experiment every.single.day. at our house), but I wanted to add in some fun by ordering science games that they could play and see even more science come to life.
