5. Which of the toys below would your kiddo choose at the toy store?
If you chose mostly…
A’s – Your child is into the physical sciences, including physics, astronomy, chemistry, and geology. Encourage your kiddo to start a rock collection, star gaze with a telescope, and try some simple kitchen chemistry!
B’s – It’s biology all the way for your baby! From zoology to botany and of course paleontology, your little one is interested in life sciences. This spring, observe a butterfly hatching from a chrysalis or grow a plant together (try a clear container, so you can see the roots, too!).
C’s – If you feel like your kiddo is in your head, you might not be far off. Your sweetie is intrigued by the psychological sciences, including sociology and anthropology. Ask about their day, who did something kind, who ate lunch with whom, and how the teacher seemed to be feeling. You might be surprised by the insights you hear!
