STEM Saturday: Free Printable Human Heart Fact Valentines

LittleMan and I were at the shop recently and looking at his options for the upcoming homeschool Valentine exchange when it dawned upon us that it had all been done before. Ninja turtles, Star Wars, all of it. And while he loves his fandoms, LittleMan really wanted something to reflect his love of science. So I offered to help him make some that showcased his interests.

And so, with LittleMan’s help, today we’re kicking off a 14 day series of Free Printable Valentines for Science Geeks. Today’s Valentine is all about human hearts!

STEM Saturday: Kid-Approved Dino Game

Well here is a card game that kids are sure to love- I know because it was made up by my children.
