This week we are going to switch things up! Now that children are finished with the school year, it doesn’t mean they should stop learning. So this week we have put together a little eye learning activity for your kids and you to try out. It’ll keep them busy all the while expanding their noggins! We hope you enjoy it!

Let’s get started. This activity will go through a series of questions, and answers will be revealed at the end, but the goal is to solve the riddle. The first letter for each right answer will solve the riddle. The first hint – the answer has something to do with your eyes!

Like an onion, this part of your body has many layers. This one converts light into signals for the brain, which is major. So it must be the most valuable player!
