Daniel and the girls tried out the magnetism and electricity experiments today in a kit we bought at Target a while back. Some of it didn't work right, but they were able to pick up some metal paperclips with a battery and some wires as you can see in this picture. The girls thought it was pretty great. They made a homemade battery with money, metal washers, vinegar, and tissue paper. Daniel showed them that it had a charge by hooking it up to a voltage reader thing that he uses when he's fixing our vehicle.
Today we used the Electric Kit and we also have Radios, Phones, and Telecommunications which is really cool because Daniel works in Telecomm. Here's a link to see some of the project kits in the series that we picked up Projects for Kids.
