More than 30,000 people visited the White House for the 135th annual Easter Egg Roll on Monday--and I spent several happy hours there myself doing science activities with dozens of kids and their families with the Lawrence Hall of Science. If you couldn't make it to Washington, D.C., you can find instructions to make the same colorful kites and spinning "bunny copters" that we made here.
Want more? HowtoSmile.org has a great collection of science and math activities. And, of course, Scientific American's own Bring Science Home offers a new way for kids and their parents to have science fun together each week. Last, please check out our other educational initiatives.
