So here in the Cleveland, OH area, it's pretty darn cold out. In fact, schools have been closed all week, even though the kids were supposed to be returning from Winter Break. Mother Nature had other ideas, though, and decided that she'd rather keep the kiddos warm at home for a few more days.
For many, snow days with sub-zero temperatures can lead to choruses of "Mom, I'm Booooored...."
In my home? When the kids are bored, we find something educational to do. Kids learn quite effectively when incorporating new information with play, after all!
One way we like to take the boredom out of Snow Days is to bring science to life, with the help of GIANTmicrobes.
GIANTmicrobes offers a HUGE selection of critters, inspired by the invisible microscopic world. From Zombie Virus, Anthrax, Brain-Eating Amoeba Plagues, The Common Cold, to Black Death, each creepy critter comes with fun educational facts, so children and parents can explore and learn about some of the invisible life going on in our world today.
Even better, adults can send a gag gift to their friends or colleagues, such as Herpes, Chlamydia, Diarrhea or E. Coli. These humorous yet educational toys are the perfect gift for both children and adults - anyone who loves science will appreciate these cheeky, unique toys!
I'd love the chance to introduce you to the latest additions to our GIANTmicrobes collection.
The three-pound brain inside your head is your mind, your personality and your body’s boss. From speaking and seeing, to thinking and remembering, your brain controls what you do!
The human brain is the most hopeful thing there is. It provides original thoughts, ideas and emotions. With it you can write books, run a race and create music. Be smart and check out this adorably realistic brain today!
You already have a mouthful, but this tooth is the cutest of them all. This cuddly tooth even has a zippered pocket where your child can put baby teeth for the tooth fairy’s visit.
Poophoria Gift Set :
Here are five adorable poops of warm untroubled delight and astonishing vitality. They are so spring-like in their luminous self-confidence that you can’t help but shout “Poophoria” !
This adorably disgusting Poophoria themed gift box includes these minis: Log, Pellets, Puddle, Perfect and Swirl.
I have to admit, while I was slightly grossed out by the assortment of dookie, Sophie was beyond thrilled to play with all the poop.
Wow. I just totally got the heebie-jeebies typing that out. Maybe I should mention I have a legitimate anxiety issue surrounding fecal matter and its associated germs?
Anyway. My 8 year old daughter doesn't have the extreme willies regarding bowel movements like I do, so she was in absolute hysterics as she showed everyone the different kinds of poop....and chased me around the house with it.
Seriously, though, poop can tell us a lot about our overall health and well-being, so as gross as it is, these plush poos came with plenty of learning and endless discussion.
As always, Sophie was absolutely thrilled to take some time out on a horribly cold and snowy day to get to know her newest GIANTmicrobes. The brain, tooth, and poop are all huge hits, and she's added them to her ever growing collection.
Got a kiddo who loves science, too? Check out these and other plush specimens from the folks at GIANTmicrobes. They truly do make a wonderful gift, and help encourage a love of learning, too!
