Suppose we have a drop of water. If we look at it very closely, well see a drop of water, nice and smooth. If you grab your microscope and magnify it roughly 2,000 times (the drop is now 40 feet across, the size of a large classroom) and look very closely, well still see relatively smooth water, but there are wiggly things floating around (paramecia). We could stop here and study these interesting little critters, but then, wed side-track ourselves into biology. So lets focus more on the water.
Of course the reward for such diligence to enjoyment is a chocolaty wooden spoon to lick or a buttery beater to smear around their face in obvious delight.
Mentally, kids in the 6-8 age range have developed skills in reading, writing, spelling and arithmetic. These new skills help them explore new frontiers of learning toys such as more advanced board games, simple math activities such as games using money, time, calendars and weights. Kids are more interested in nature and simple science activities. They have increased interest in collecting things, in taking on hobbies, and in the discovering the line between fantasy and reality. Their capacity for creative play is expanded to include playing real musical instruments, reading music, and larger arts and craft projects.
