Gumball Machine Maker
We were so thrilled to try this STEM kit. Kids get to build a gumball machine that’s part marble run, part roller coaster, part pinball machine! Each segment of track teaches a different lesson in mechanical physics, exploring topics such as simple machines, force, motion, momentum, gravity, Newton’s laws, energy transfer, and more. Track segments are modular and can be easily moved around to create an almost limitless number of different gumball machines. As they roll down the tracks, the gumballs perform cool stunts via a pulley lift, pendulum, funnel, trampoline, pinball launcher, domino slide, and more!

What an adorable main character! Yasmin is an exuberant girl who is interested in everything from exploring to building to fashion. This book tells four short stories from Yasmin’s life, all in chapters with lively, full-color illustrations. Each story shows Yasmin as a creative problem solver even when things get hard. Her Pakistani American culture is embedded throughout the story such as the foods Yasmin’s family eats like naan or how she calls her father Baba.

Then teach Toothless to fly & plasma-blast. He’ll move his wings & ears as you guide him. In fact, there’s a lot that you can do with Toothless once he’s hatched!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, headlamps beat book lamps for reading hands down. Because they’re hands-free AND have much better light! (All over the page light, not just in one spot.) Plus, how cool are you when you sit in bed with a headlamp?! These really motivate young readers.

What a fun remix of Sleeping Beauty. In this version, the princess realizes she can’t die until she’s 18 and concludes that she must be INVINCIBLE!! She becomes a total daredevil — vanquishing dragons, cliff-diving, and attacking ogres. When her 18th birthday rolls around she returns home to face the evil fairy, Ratshade. And things get even more interesting . . . She’s a great heroine and the story is a fabulous chuckle-fest.
We highly recommend this fast-paced, fun and easy dice game.
A to Z Mysteries by Rob Roy MYSTERY
This addictive chapter book mystery series will keep your kids reading for hours and days and months. My kids read them all more than once so we highly recommend this series, especially for second grade.
Sherlock Express is great for both thinking and visual discrimination because kids use the alibi clue cards to eliminate suspects and find the culprit. THINKING. So much thinking. For example, if your kids turn over an alibi card picture of the library, it means that any of the suspects with a library background are eliminated as the culprit.
Squeeze and watch as the toys slowly go from squished to full size. Kids love the tactile fun of these.

Harry Potter Magical Beasts
If your younger Harry Potter fans are looking for a new game, this simple, action game might be a good start. To win, collect clues to find missing magical creatures.
My kids and I think these logic puzzles are so much fun! Probably because you get the pieces to manipulate and can choose your level from easy to challenging. The game lets you get the hang of the strategy with the easy levels and then you progress to more difficult puzzles. A bonus is this is a great on-the-go activity since it comes in a nifty carrying case.

Maki Stack Family Party Game
Aren’t these wooden sushi pieces the best? Pick a card then race to build a matching stack using the pieces of sushi, soy sauce, and mat. My daughter and I often play this before bedtime and love it. We like that it takes about 10 – 15 minutes and makes us laugh. Play with two people or play in teams of two. In teams, one person wears a blindfold and their partner communicates how to build the stack correctly to them. Great for practicing clear communication! (MY REVIEW HERE.)

Dory and the Real True Friend by Abby Hanlon REALISTIC
Dory is one of my favorite book characters because her imagination is THE BEST! She has three imaginary friends: one monster friend, one fairy godmother that’s actually not a lady, and one bad lady nemesis. I love this story because she meets a real-life friend who understands all about imaginary friends and together, they’re the perfect match. (GREAT series!!)

The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale, illustrated by LeUyen Pham

Bird and Squirrel on Ice by James Burks
Okay, this might be my new favorite graphic novel series– it’s absolutely hysterical! In this first book, Bird’s over-confident, laissez-faire character pairs perfectly with Squirrel’s logical, fearful one. The duo crash land in the Penguin world where Bird is thought to be the “Chosen One” meant to save the penguins from the Great Whale. Absolutely everything is pitch-perfect — the illustrations, the characters, the dialogue, and the pacing. I highly recommend it.
