From stories to science experiments, Alphabet Glue has a little something for everyone. This bundle includes two fall-themed issues: Volume 9 and Volume 14 — Fold functional paper periscopes for amateur espionage and make simple plant presses. Sail a fleet of tiny sailboats and learn a bit about surface tension in the process. Reflect on the shape of rain drops, and create a bit of refrigerator-ready art while you're at it. Make bouncy balls out of laundry room staples and handy office supplies, and spend a bit of time thinking about how fossils are formed before trying your hand at making your own. All this and more in two fun- and story-filled volumes!

And, yes, I'm playing hooky from Sunday Surf this week to tell you about this bundle! I just wanted to make sure you knew right away since there are only a few days to learn about it and decide whether it's valuable to you. (But in the spirit of sharing links, Jennifer has a great one on Hybrid Rasta Mama about bundle burnout, why you should choose the bundles you do, and what you can do to organize your purchases. Definitely worth a read!) And I'll be bringing you some more play resources this week, so check back for inspiration toward fun and creative parenting.
I am so grateful for your support. Buying the bundle supports this site!
