After the paint’s dried you can attach the stem of the flower by gluing it to the back. We used a paper straw so that it was thick enough to hold up the egg carton, if you use something like a pipe cleaner it will just bend. Next choose a colored pom pom and glue that to the center of the painted egg carton.4

Waves: Physical Science for Kids from the Picture Book Science series gets kids excited about science!

Have you ever floated on waves in the ocean? Have you ever stood in a human wave at a baseball game?

Waves are all around us! You can find waves in a field of wheat, in a dangling string, in a slinky, and in flags that are blowing in the breeze. There are even invisible waves! Sunlight and sound move in waves, and cell phones and microwaves use waves to transmit voices and to cook food. You can hear your mom say, “Hello,” on the cell phone because of waves.

Waves: Physical Science for Kids is a fun, illustrated introduction to the concept of waves and energy and their presence in our world. In this nonfiction picture book, elementary school children learn to spot all the different kinds of waves they encounter in daily life by finding real-world science connections. Simple vocabulary, detailed illustrations, easy science experiments, and a glossary all support exciting learning for kids ages 5 to 8. Perfect for beginner readers or as a read aloud nonfiction picture book!
