Combining craft and electronics is our thing here at Tech Age Kids and we couldn't resist making a Spooky House craft with the cute Ghost LEDboard from Teknikio.

In this project we've combined origami and electronics to make a cute Spooky House project which is super easy to make, but also educational as kids learn how to connect a simple circuit with an LED and a switch.

The Google Interland web app is a brilliant tool to help children connect with the internet as a useful tool in a safe and positive way.

Interland has been around since last year, but it's only come to my attention last week, when Google launched their Safety Centre in the UK. Their latest campaign focussed on personal data privacy and security and how Google is working to protect that. One of the sections is about Protecting Families - and that is what we're going to look at in this article.

We've tried out the KANO Harry Potter Wand kit, a new kids coding gadget and app which has been released in time for Christmas 2018. I love Harry Potter myself so this product really appeals. At Tech Age Kids we always try and put a purpose behind coding to make it more engaging and this product does just that.

I tried the kit out with an 11-year-old Harry Potter fan who loves technology.

Tech Will Save Us have upgraded their previous Electro Dough kit (review here) and made it much more accessible for younger kids to use. We've asked Phil Wickins from Run Don't Walk to play with the kits with his children and write about their findings. We're really excited to have Phil on board with his younger kids, as ours are growing up way too fast. {Elbrie de Kock}

This review covers 3 separate kits from ‘Tech Will Save Us’:

ANKI has announced a new limited edition version of the Cozmo robot in a new Interstaller Blue colour.

Cozmo is a very cool little robot packed with artificial intelligence and personality. And our favourite feature is that Cozmo is now programmable via Code Lab, a visual programming tool.
