Our science author parent, Jodi Wheeler-Toppen came by to give me a private lesson on squishy circuits as she is preparing to write a new book and has been trying new things out. Squishy circuits involve using soft objects and foods to conduct electricity to create closed circuits. This is the safest way for kids to learn about electricity. I know this sounds a bit odd and I am not explaining it very well so here is a great resource for you to study further! http://sylviashow.com/episodes/s2/e7/mini/squishycircuits
