Super easy to use & fun
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2020
We have done several of these activities with a 3-year-old and two 6-year-olds. With significant adult help, all three of the boys are able to participate.
Some of the best parts about this book:
--Every experiment has a list in the sidebar for ingredients needed and another list in the sidebar for tools needed, so you don't have to read through the whole experiment to figure out what you need and accidentally forget something. This also helps because some of the tools are super random that you won't have at your house and you will want to get those before you try to do the experiment.
--I also like that each experiment has a rating for difficulty and a rating for mess level. It has been much easier to skim through the recipes when I've been able to see at first glance how difficult the experiment is going to be.
--Each experiment has little information boxes that can be modified to work with different ages of kids so that you can teach on each kid's level.
--And the kids are having fun! They enjoy the experiments even if they are too young to understand the science.
--Really creative ideas. Glow in the dark foods, fossil molds using melted chocolate, food coloring comparison with different foods... Cool stuff.
No complaints except maybe a few more pictures would be nice.
