Five On Friday

Furrbonacci Sequence

1)  A friend of mine sent me a link to this beautiful kitty...he's showing us the Furrbonacci Sequence!  Fibonacci numbers are a special sequence in math that can be visualized as the spiral above.  That's not a very good explanation, but you can learn more about it here at Math Is Fun.  Kitty's are pretty darn smart!

Wooden Block Heart Puzzle
Felt Tangram Heart

2)  Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  Here are a couple of fun DIY puzzles you can make for your sweet Valentine.  The first one is a Wooden Block Heart Puzzle.  The supplies are easy to find at your local craft store.  You can find the instructions at Studio DIY.  The second craft is a felt Tangram Heart.  You do need to know how to sew to make this, but it looks very easy.  You can find instructions at the Make blog.  Puzzles make the best gifts, and handmade puzzles are even better!

Cool Circuits JR

3)  Science Wiz has published a Junior version of their Cool Circuits puzzle.  I don't know how long this has been around, but I just found it!  The original version is totally awesome, so I'm just assuming this version is probably pretty good too.  The idea of this puzzle is to complete the circuits using the squiggly shaped pieces and light up the board.  You can buy it on Amazon.

PuzzleNation blog

4)  PuzzleNation blog has a nice puzzly post about Valentine's Day.  Check it out!

5)  We went to see Time for Three at the Hylton Performing Arts Center this week.  They were a total BLAST!  What awesome performers!  If you ever get a chance to see them play, you totally should take it!  Their style and vitality reminds me of the Piano Guys

Randoms by David Liss

6)  One more thing...I just finished reading this amazing book!  Ginny recommended that I read it.  And she was totally right!  I loved it!  It is a sci-fi adventure called Randoms written by David Liss.  It's funny and brilliant!  We are now trying to get Jack to read it too, because we know he would also love it.  The only problem we have with this story is that book 2 is not out yet.  :-(

Kitten Hearts

I leave you with some kitten hearts!
