Model trains are fun. Here is a video from the Science Channel that shows how model trains are made. It is interesting to see how things are made. Model trains come in different scales and the train layouts can become very big and complicated for serious train hobbyists and model train collectors.
If you love trains tell us about it in the comments.

Play this like regular “Bingo” games. When you see one of the signs mark an “X” on sign on your sheet. The first person to get five-in-a-row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) is the winner.
For an even longer game you can play “Blackout” where all of the squares must have an “X” to win.

It is fun to see how balloons are made. Some are used in balloon decorating, some are used for helium balloons, some are used to make balloon animals. Whatever fun thing your balloons are used for, they are manufactured the same way. This cool video shows how latex balloons (also known as rubber balloons) are made.
Camping is fun for the whole family. Cooking can even be a highlight of the trip instead of a dreaded chore.
Here are a few tips to make your campout meals fun and easy.
Foil Makes Camping Food Easy
Aluminum foil lets you prepare meals ahead of time. Then just put them on the coals and before long you have a great meal. Make sure to use heavy-duty foil then double the foil layers. A grownup should be the only one who places foil packs on the coals (and only a grownup should remove them). They get really hot. Hot coals are better than an open flame.
