Can a toilet-paper tube support your weight?
Columns are often used to hold up heavy loads, such as the roofs
of buildings. The heavy load pushes on the column, putting it in
compression. So, a good column should be very strong in
compression.   Print out this fun challenge and start building!

Using Arts & Crafts to Encourage Creativity in Your Child

There are a couple of download programmes that are shareware,
that means that you can download them and use them but it's not
the full version of the programme.  We have had great fun with a
few of them and thought you might like to try them out.  The use is
unlimited but only for a certain portion of the programme.  

This is more of a lesson plan but can be used as a
family art/craft
experience.  In PDF format, I obtained from
ACTS.Org whose many
links you will find on my site.

Aunt Annie's is a particularly lovely programme
with some lovely crafts, and very varied.  
If this is the free bit we get, then the full
version would keep you busy for a year!

Colour 10 PK
I must admit I haven't given this one to the
kids to try out but as its name says it's colour
craft/concept.  Always worth having, much of
the craft is printable and so for keeps!

Again I will enlist the help of the scientists, but I am
assured that this is a programme worth having a look at.

Always my favourite, should perhaps be under concepts or
concentration.  This is from my personal collection of material and
a version my kids love!

Right, now for some other crafts that don't really need to be
downloaded.... Just click on the link to open a new page.  When
you have printed or saved "file as" don't forget to hit your back
browser to being you back to this page....  If you are into
scrapbooking I found a delightful site with free paper downloads
