MEL Kids Subscription Review – “Spring Force”

I loved how much this month’s MEL Kids project inspired my daughter! She had so much fun testing out different surfaces and all of the educational information they provided coupled with the experiment was a perfect display of friction and how it works. I also liked that they encouraged her to add her own materials to the wheels to see how they worked. I always find that the knowledge sticks with them so much longer when it is hands-on and led somewhat by their own train of thought. The extra activities in the book and the VR portion were great ways to finish out our learning session. I feel like these boxes are really starting to hit their stride and I’m eager to see what our next box brings!

MEL Kids Subscription Review – “Electric Boat”

This month’s MEL Kids project was pretty fun and I know that my daughter and I are both excited at the prospect of making our own gyroscope disk designs to see what happens when we test them out! I loved how well organized this was and I appreciated the extras like the activities in the book and the VR app portion of the project, but I’m not quite so sure how I feel about the value overall. This box used to cost $24.90, which I definitely think this meets, but the cost has increased to $34.90 which is quite a bit more and at that price, I feel like we needed just a bit more. What do you think?
