Why "pick-me-ups"? As a Mom, I find that I need a word of encouragement, a new way of looking at a problem, or a new idea to try every once in a while. I'm glad to share with you 3 of the websites or blog posts that have helped me in some way---I hope it will be a blessing for you, too! Keep an eye out for these each Monday :-)
1. Nasa's Astronomy Picture of the Day archive has some breathtaking images to view online. You won't want to miss Yosemite Winter Night.
2. YouTube's Scientific American Space Lab show is pretty cool. (Parents, some episodes may not kid-friendly. Discretion recommended.)
The Solar System Song (visit the blog to see the video)
the Planets Song (visit the blog to see the video)
3. We are so going to listen to this before bed!!
The Astronomy for Kids Podcast
Neat website with the basics of the Solar System, plus cool graphics at KidsAstronomy.com
4. One more, just for kicks. This mobile would be easy to make using simple materials.
