The best science gifts for kids in 2016 - ExtremeTech The idea of a “science toy” sort of breaks down below a certain age. A toddler who cannot yet read does not need a scientific calculator, for example, and even the most science-oriented second-grader might struggle to make it through the collected works of Stephen Hawking. If you’ve got a youngling to buy for, we’ve put together some gift ideas we think they’ll enjoy: things that will cultivate curiosity and stand up to whatever a kid might put them through, or at least be inexpensive enough to use hard and then grow out of, while respecting the idea that kids can be interested in things they maybe can’t yet do with all the finesse of an adult. Fear is the mind-killer. Don’t let that new microscope collect dust in a closet because your budding biologist is afraid to break it and get yelled at.

How to get your kids to sleep this Christmas Eve - Zara Whelan There’s only one more sleep until Christmas and although the countdown to the big day is always a magical time for even the most grumpy of children, the excitement leading up to it often means that the last sleep can be the hardest. Tonight, mum’s, dad’s and care-givers across the land will be united in the arduous battle of bundling their little cherubs off to bed at a reasonable hour so there is time to relax before what could be considered to be the most hectic day of the year. With Seth, aged seven, and Lilian, aged six, our house on Christmas Eve will undoubtedly be an emotional day fuelled by anticipation and Cadbury’s Heroes. The two of them are usually quite vocal and excitable, even on a regular day, but December 24 brings a whole new level of hyperactivity. I aim for a pretty relaxed Christmas Eve.

The Kennedy Center's Arts Education Network: Thematic Collections /themes The Kennedy Center: ARTSEDGE — the National Arts and Education Network MY ARTSEDGE | Login Three essential things parents should share with their kids about Christmas It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere we go, from the Judy Garland music loops at the local mall to the inflatable reindeer on the neighbor’s lawn. People are rushing to buy gifts and decorate their homes for the holidays; anticipating family get-togethers and how to negotiate them with as much cheer and as little fighting as possible. In the midst of the busy-ness, many of us are trying to discern how to teach our children about why Christmas matters.

About three decades later, he’d live as a homeless traveling preacher, who humbled himself even further by suffering on the cross.
