Summertime Stargazing with Kids

One of my favorite things about summer as a kid was staying up late and stargazing, especially during a meteor shower. There’s something spectacular about looking up into the dark skies and seeing glittering stars and planets, some brighter than others, and some you don’t see until you stare long enough and a little faint twinkling dot appears. Do you have a little Galileo at home? This easy-peasy project will surely excite those curious minds and make stargazing a fun family activity this summer!

I get a new package about every other day, (sometimes even multiple times a day). Every time a package arrives, I hear the doorbell ring loudly. I am a new mom and I realized just how important it is for the carriers to not ring the doorbell! Nothing is worse than waking up a sleeping baby!…
