The hubbs took the whole week between Christmas and New Year’s off so we played A LOT. Playing with Dad around is always so much more fun.
At our house Dad is the one who usually does the science experiments, etc. with the kids. I just don’t have enough extra energy…it’s a great thing for them to do together, they all enjoy it, so we all win!
There are 5 activities in the kit with all the instructions and supplies you’ll need for each. The projects are
- Make a self powered light
- Make your own glow stick
- Create a bubbling light wand
- Glow in the dark slime
- Make a glowing night sky
Our favorites were the glow stick and bubbling light wand but they were all so fun!
Each activity or project tells you exactly what to do in simple instructions that an independent reader could follow on his own. After the instructions there’s a “The Science Behind the Fun” section with some fun facts that we all found very interesting like information about static electricity, atoms, and zinc sulfide.
We held it up to the light for a good long time and then played in the dark.
My kids think science is just the coolest cause… it totally is. This kit has been such a fun way to learn and discover some cool science at home with our little family. Science rocks (and glows…)!
