Snap Circuits

[ad name=”Amazon Toy Banner”]

As a homeschooling parent I’m constantly looking for fun and exciting things to do with my girls. Just recently I was introduced to snap circuits. Snap circuits allow you to create real functioning electrical systems with out soldering etc… They use snaps, resembling those on a jacket, and snap together. The book that came with the set has over 300 different things you can create but we had fun doing our own thing. My girls loved it and learned a bit too. We all now know the difference between having components run in series and in parallel and understand the concept of resistance. The girls favorite part was when I cut the power to the motor that was spinning the fan and it took flight and slowly flew upward.

In case you’re wondering the title is an ode to on of our favorite School House Rock (Rocks!) songs.
