Because we can buy presents for the kids that are educational and they L.O.V.E. it.  This year we purchased a science type gift for each kid.  As you saw in a previous post, we got Kylie a butterfly garden. We purchased this really awesome snap circuit set for Connor.

He LOVES it.  Seriously.  On Christmas day he must have spent HOURS just making all of the different projects.

In this box, there are 100 projects to make.  Anywhere from an electric light switch to an ambulance contact alarm.  Connor says his favorite project so far is the Light Emitting Diode (LED) because he learned that the electricity has to all go one way.   If you turn the light around, it won’t complete the circuit.

I just love that I can give gifts to my children and they can LEARN something from them.  But it’s not a chore for them.  The LOVE to do it and have loads of fun at the same time!!!
