We cut up our collection of temporary tattoos and combined them with neon dyes made from grocery store variety food coloring (of course we also threw in a little glitter and a handful of Sharpies too). Et voila! We came … Continue reading
All these recipes are basic kitchen-chemistry. With a quick trip to the grocery store (and perhaps the health store for fragrance oils) you’ll have everything you need to mix them at home. Host a spa science party perhaps?! We shared our favorite recipe here… Continue reading
Sage and I layered felt hearts, cinched them at the bottom with a few stitches and attached them to elastic wristbands and barrettes. The perfect accessory for the day!
One of our most loyal and enthusiastic Curious Jane girls, Anya, 7, took our Wired 101 Workshop last month. She enjoyed the Circuit Card project so much that she took it to the next level by making a bunch of her holiday greeting cards into light-up Circuit Cards! We’re so impressed with her ingenuity and D.I.Y. Holiday spirit. Go Anya! Continue reading
This weekend, at our Wired 101 workshop, we tackled three projects: Circuit Cards, Bristle Bugs, and, the hands-down favorite – Drawbots! These little creatures make the coolest patterns and even our seven-year-old engineers were able to make them almost entirely … Continue reading
We were inspired to make these ‘cards’ by the simplicity of using LEDs to add a spark of light to any project. This is a great “wiring 101” project because kids can see exactly how a circuit works, and they can assemble it themselves without stripping wires, adding switches or worrying about being shocked.

This project was inspired by a quick drawbridge project we use to illustrate tension in our buildings class. When we started to play with the materials, it transformed into this cereal box castle with the drawbridge rope doubling as a handle for closing and carrying. We love our miniatures! We added some characters (inspired by favorite dad designer, Joel Henriques) that can be printed out and colored in. Or, better yet, create your own… enjoy! Continue reading
