Kids Page

Whether you are an adult with children, a curious child, or a child-like adult, we think you will enjoy what the Kids Page has to offer! (We certainly enjoy putting it together each issue!)

On the Kids Page you will find a word search, a vocabulary word, an activity and more, all of which relate in some way to the topics discussed in each issue. Fun facts and creative learning are what this page is all about. It could be a Junior Forensic Scientist edition, a Junior Artist edition, a general page or some other focused edition we have yet to come up with, but they all have the same goal - sharing knowledge in a way that is entertaining and accessible.

And, as always, we're open to suggestions. If you think of something you'd like to see on the Kids Page in an upcoming issue, be sure to email

Tile painting is an easy, fun, rainy day project that kids and parents can do together. (Rain, by the way, is not actually necessary to do this project — you can do it any time in any weather!.. Well, maybe not at night if the power's out... but you get the idea.)

Making Litmus Paper

Be sure to ask your parents before beginning this potentially messy project. After all, telling them its in the name of science afterwards won’t make you any less busted if you’re having to explain why the kitchen walls now have purple spots on them.
