What they say: From bestselling kids’ activity author Dawn Isaac comes this exciting new volume full of creative (and occasionally outrageous) ideas for for budding young scientists.
Whether your child is crazy about chemistry or bananas about biology (or, let’s face it, just likes making a mess), this book is choc-a-block full of experiments and projects that will get kids really excited about science – and all without going anywhere near a TV, tablet or computer screen. Whether they want to Launch a Rocket, Create a Giant Egg, Blow a Bubble Snake or Build a Balloon Powered Racing Car, there’s a whole wealth of fun suggestions to keep kids amused – and you never know, they might even learn something along the way.
What we say: “My sons, age 7 and 9, thoroughly enjoyed looking through this book, while planning which activities to make first! The instructions, along with the images, are simple to follow and appeal to many ages and groups. There’s making, tricks, mini science activities – you name it, this book has it!
My youngest decided to make a three-pronged boomerang first. He needed a little help to construct, but it worked! Result!
We also followed a trick activity, where your arms feel as if they are not in your control and they float to the ceiling! My sons thought this hilarious!
The book is perfect for the school holidays, giving you so many ideas and activities for your child to enjoy – I’m sure we will be planning our next activity adventure very soon!”
