Post-It Note Roulette

What we have here are 96-sheet, white genuine Post-It note pads, 4” wide x just shy of 3” tall with adhesive strips on the top edge. Plus, for mysterious reasons, the samples we received have letters or names (mostly girl names) strung across the top margin in pink, blue or green. Just ignore them and play a little Post-It note roulette. We'll stick our hand in the over-sized box and pull out 10. That’s why they call it surplus and that is why genuine Post-It notes are this cheap.

How Does It Work?

Why does it do that? Develop an elemental understanding of magnetism, electromagnetism, electrochemistry, radio, thermodynamics, light and optics. Simon Quellen Field's 228-page paperback, Gonzo Gizmos, Projects & Devices to Channel your Inner Geek explains processes, equipment and scientific terms -- and then, for starters, tells you things like how to make a rotary steam engine in 15 minutes from a soda can, a candle and a few scraps of rubber tubing. It's the favorite of our resident geeks -- but not for kids unless they're working with an adult. That would be a mature adult. An insured, mature adult.

Make Markers, Make Drawings

This kit takes creativity to a new level—and weaves in focus and logic to boot. The task? Take the supplies and tools included in the Crayola® Marker Design Studio, follow some precise instructions and create your very own custom-color markers. Use the kit’s mixing guide or bring to life the colors of your imagination. Either way, you’ll end up with (8) hand-made markers when you’re done. Kit includes tweezers and marker-snapping tool to ensure the marker-making fingers stay clean. Also includes special marker tips: one side to make multiple lines and the other for a solid, thick line. Comes with a snazzy, colorful carrying case, too. Built-in sharpener not included (because these are markers, not crayons). For ages 8+.
