Getting Your Science Fair On! #ProjectReady

My 7th grader loves shopping. She’s the type who gets excited about a trip to Walmart. Doesn’t matter what we are there for. She loves shopping.

Last night we needed to pick up the supplies for her Science Fair project. We shopped. She picked up items. I snapped pics. Once the serious part of the shopping trip was over, I cut her loose to do her own shopping.

The Preteen found one of those boxes of beads that you iron after creating your image on the peg board…melty beads. We had the Teen with us. We hardly saw as she perused the makeup aisle. She could live in that aisle. Question: How does a mom like me who never wears makeup and is not in to doing her hair, have two girls who are as obsessed with their appearance and wardrobes as my two?

But, back to Science Fair shopping. We’re part of #ProjectReady — Elmer has teamed up with the Society for Science and the Public for the Broadcom MASTERS Science Fair for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Find a site in your state where your middle schooler can participate in the Broadcom MASTERS Science Fair.

My tween and I were both surprised at the number of Elmer’s items available. Elmer’s is very clearly not just glue. We found Tri-Fold Display Boards, Project Popperz poster markers, and an assortment of cut out letters, numbers, and symbols from Elmer’s Project Popperz.

I was compensated for my participation in Elmer’s #ProjectReady through Collective Bias. The views expressed in the post are those of myself and my tween.
