After a bit of a life-event related delay, Volume Sixteen of Alphabet Glue has arrived at last! Dedicated to exploring art, natural science, and the creative process, this issue of The Glue is full of fun projects and printables that can be extended in any number of directions to add some extra science and sparkle to your snowy winter afternoons.

Use temperature and color in concert with one another to create unique paintings that open the door for discussions around art in the abstract. Continue exploration of the science of cold temperatures by creating ice pendulums made possible through changing the freezing point of water. Explore both science and art by losing yourself in a stack of page turners on subjects such as the world’s coldest, iciest places and the lives of famous artists.
Compose miniature libraries on favorite subjects and stash them in empty matchboxes to share with friends and neighbors. Whip up a set of colorful bookmarks that are both book review and (very) short comic.
Assemble simple notebooks for use by young citizen scientists as they wonder their way through the natural world. Make whimsical mobiles inspired by the flocks of migrating birds often seen overhead in the stark winter sky, and follow up by visiting your library to check out a hefty stack of great titles that will teach you a bit more about the migratory movement of Earth’s resident animals.
