Homemade compass. D. showed interest in

^Homemade compass. D. showed interest in north/south/east/west last nite, so we made a homemade compass. We talked about north+south poles – santa + superman live THAT way, and the penguins live the other way. His eyes lit up when I said "the earth is a giant magnet, that why this works" – he "gets it". Smart kid. The info we just "know" as adults came from somewhere and its a privilege to be a small part of building new knowledge. Learning + play go hand in hand.^
