Appleseed Lane December Electricity and Circuit Review and Discount

Appleseed Lane’s boxes are filled with 3-5 Science and Math projects.  The subscription is $23.00 a month and the box is packed with activities for children 4-10. If you want to try Appleseed Lane, click HERE and  use the code FRIEND10 and put my name (Erin Hamm) in the order comments section (It will be the page you put your address in).   L is 4 years old and was so excited for this box to come.  He loves Science and completing projects.  C helped L with this box has he loves electricity and circuits.
The Box
 Appleseed Lane has the cutest boxes.  They are very kid friendly and L knew it was his box right away.
Information Card
The card this month was a bit wrinkled from all the materials in the box.  It wasn’t a big deal at all.  This month’s theme was Electricity and Circuits.  The projects were Power it Up, Let It Flow, Static Magic and a bonus project Starry Night.  There was also information about a contest to win $50.00, by making a circuit with Play Dough.  C and L will work on the contest later this week.
Directions
All the directions to each project are on the back of the information card.  I like how they make good use of the materials without adding clutter to the box.
Playdough, Seedlings Magazine, and Conductor/Insulator test
Appleseed Lane included Play Dough for the contest.  Seedlngs is a magazine/book that is included in each Appleseed Lane box.  This Seedlings is a book that discusses electricity, circuits, and electrochemical cells.  This is a very informative book.  L is very fascinated about electricity and how it works.  L really enjoyed reading this book with C.  The conductor/insulator test will be used in one of the projects.
Reading Seedlings
Power It Up Project
This project involves making a circuit with water, to make a light turn out.
Power It Up Project
 L and C worked hard on this project, but couldn’t get the light to turn on.  We are not sure what went wrong, but they had fun putting it together.Update: Appleseed Lane emailed all subscribers and gave updated instructions for this project.  We will try the updated instructions soon.
Let It Flow
This project was all about testing different materials to see if they were conductors or insulators.
Paper Clip
 This was L’s favorite project.  L and C made a circuit and tested each item to see how it test.  There was a rubber band, paper clip, plastic chip, penny, and golf tee.  L had so much fun with this, we tested a pair of scissors too.
The Test
Static Magic
As you could guess, this project was all about static electricity
The project
This one was really fun.  The project involved putting a nickel on it’s side and balancing a stick on top.  That was pretty tricky!  L helped generated the static electricity and he watched the stick move.
Static Electricity and Water
L and I used static electricity to move water!
Starry Night
In this project, L made a lantern, they he made a circuit to light it up
Working on the lantern
The lantern
L loved seeing this lantern lit up!
The Whole Box

 Final Thought:  This was a fantastic box.  I am glad Appleseed Lane followed up with subscribers about the Power It Up project.  L and I are going to try it again soon.  L loved learning about electricity and circuits.  L is fascinated with Science and this box was age appropriate and on his level.  It is very hard to find age appropriate Science experiments for kids.  Appleseed Lane is $23.00 and you can save $10.00 on your first box by using the code FRIEND10 and put my name (Erin Hamm) in the order comments section (It will be the page you put your address in).  You can click HERE to order.
