Now that Little Mister is here, it’s now my turn to perform some science projects with him. Testing his reflexes is super neat and fascinating to observe him as he develops.

Time to get my magnifying glass out and see what I discover about Little Mister using “Experimenting with Babies: 50 Amazing Science Projects You Can Perform on Your Kid” .

Babies can be a joy—and hard work. Now, they can also be a 50-in-1 science project kit!
