Looking for a craft to keep your little ones entertained? How about crafting a pyramid?
What you'll need:
1. White printer paper
2. Colored pencils, crayons, or markers
3. Cotton balls
Select a large piece of paper to act as the background. Decorate the top two-thirds or so as the sky and the remainder as sand, which will act as the ground. If you're feeling really creative and have a sand box or other sand around, you can even glue real sand to the bottom.
Grab another piece of paper and draw a triangle. The triangle will become the pyramid and will be getting a bit taller, so keep that in mind for the size. Cut out your triangle shape.
Cut the triangle into horizontal strips (they should be going lengthwise parallel to the triangle base). The horizontal strips will mimic the shape of the pyramid steps.
Your child can then color the strips however they choose. This is a good time to show them some pictures or videos with pyramids so they can learn about the history and get an idea of the colors they want to use for their monument.
Glue the finished strips to the background starting with the longest strip on the bottom going in order to the smallest at the top, leaving a small space between each strip.
For an extra touch, you can grab a couple of cotton balls to use as clouds. Just pull apart the cotton balls a bit and glue them on!
And just like that, you've occupied your little one and snuck some education in too! ... See MoreSee Less

Uchiwa, a type of Japanese fan, were originally made out of large leaves and animal hair. Today, they're typically made from bamboo and paper. As part of seasonal traditions, uchiwa were often given as gifts during the hotter seasons.
Making uchiwa is a great craft to work on with your kids at home while learning more about Japanese culture.
-2 pieces of paper (the thicker, the better)
-Colored pencils, crayons, or markers
-Fly swatter (preferably one that is bigger)
To start, place your fly swatter on a piece of paper. Trace a circle around it, leaving the bottom part a flat edge. Draw a gentle curve that bends into the circle where the flat edge is.
Place both pieces of paper together and cut out the shape that you drew so that you'll have two identical pieces. Decorate one side each of your two pieces of paper.
When your designs are complete, glue the back of one of your paper cutouts and press the fly swatter into place making sure that part of the fly swatter is showing (similar to how the bamboo shows on the uchiwa). Repeat with the other cutout and place on the other side of the fly swatter. ... See MoreSee Less

With all the talk of things spreading quickly, we thought we'd share a positive story about something going viral. In a northern suburb in Paris known for its gang violence, one woman, Hind Ayadi, launched an initiative to work with young people in her neighborhood to clean up trash from all over the city. They saw great success and took it one step further: they then challenged Marseilles via social media to do the same. Cleanup challenges have continued to be lobbed across locations and have spread all the way to Morocco and Tunisia. Let's remember to spread kindness and goodness! ... See MoreSee Less
What brings a deejay, a town in Italy, and five weeks of silence together? The compelling need to preserve the sounds of priceless Stradivari instruments. Deejay Leonardo Tedeschi reached out to the Violin Museum in Cremona, Italy with an idea to catologue all of the sounds of the instruments in order to safeguard them. A team of sound technicians and musicians painstakingly began recording but ran into a problem - the ambient noise from the town around them was getting picked up on their sensitive recording devices. In an incredible show of community support, the town of Cremona went silent for eight hours, six days a week, for five weeks until the project was completed. Amazing things can be accomplished when we work together with the same goal in mind. ... See MoreSee Less

Nellie Bly: Born Elizabeth Cochran Seaman, Nellie Bly made a name for herself (see what we did there?) as a pioneer in investigative journalism writing an expose on the brutality and neglect present at two insane asylums. In 1888, inspired by Jules Verne's novel "Around the World in Eighty Days," Bly decided to take her own trip around the world and beat the fictional record of the book. She made it, traveling almost entirely by herself, in seventy-two days. ... See MoreSee Less
