  1. I will have to go through some of my book marks for ASD. My son is learning the recorder also. The Science Works trip you took looks interesting. This weekend we are doing a mini getaway and I am trying to find a place rich in museums or hands on things that my kids can do. I think I am more excited then they are right about now. Never heard of cauliflower wraps before. They do sound kind of interesting. I will have to come back and check out the video that you suggested.

  2. The 50 dangerous things site looks fascinating. Have you seen the 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4 list? It is UK based but probably the ideas can be used in most places.
