Survive the Summer with DK Canada + #Giveaway

It’s the last day of school! This is a bittersweet moment for most parents, especially ones like me who work from home.

On one had, the kids are home and that means you get to spend more time with them! On the other hand, the kids are home and between the fights that have to be broken up plus their constant need for a snack, nothing is going to get done.

I love my boys but I swear they don’t know how to keep themselves busy. It’s like there voice is on auto play and all that comes out of their mouths is “Mom, I’m bored!” the entire summer. Thankfully, I’ve survived a few summers already and I have some books from DK Canada that will help.

Let STEM help you through the summer.

Just because the kids are on summer holidays that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. Our summer is going to be jam-packed with fun learning thanks to the titles we received from DK Canada. Check out our reviews plus stay tuned for a giveaway on two of the titles your kids will love.

“Perfect for kids ages 3-6, this activity book will get little ones discovering amazing everyday science as they play their way through 14 exciting experiments found inside.”

I really wish I could show you all the fun we’re going to have with this book – experimenting, slime making, hula hoop bubbles and so much more…but we’re moving in a couple of weeks and I accidentally packed this along with our other books. You’ll just have to follow us Instagram to see all our family fun. Buy Look I’m a Scientist on and join in on the fun!

“Written for children ages 8-12 with little to no coding experience, this straightforward visual guide uses fun graphics and easy-to-follow instructions to show young learners how to build their own computer projects using Scratch, a popular free programming language.”

My 9-year-old absolutely loves to code! There are sheets and sheets of paper with coding all over the house for the game he plans to make – I’d tell you the title but he’s too scared someone will steal his idea. Find out more about this BESTSELLER on plus enter to WIN a copy below.

“Complete with a unique jacket with an interactive compound machine incorporating several of the simple mechanisms featured in the book, How Machines Work: Zoo Break! uses models and illustrations to demonstrate the technology of six simple machines: levers, pulleys, screws, inclined planes, wedges, and wheels.”

What little boy doesn’t love machines of all kinds?! Tractors, bikes, anything wheels…this book will teach them how it all works. Find out more here plus enter to WIN a copy below.

ONE lucky CANADIAN readers will WIN a copy of CODING GAMES IN SCRATCH and HOW MACHINES WORK: ZOO BREAK from DK Canada – must be 18+ to enter. Giveaway ends 7/13.
