I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I find most kids are really into learning about science and I love to encourage that interest at home with my own kids! The Young Scientists Club are the makers of entertaining, informative science experiment kits made just for kids. One can crystallize a lifelong love with science with their newest offering, The Magic School Bus Growing Crazy Crystals. Using the kit and adding in everyday items like salt, sugar and baking soda ingredients you can work together with your kids and learn through science experiments.
The well-known characters from The Magic School Bus guide youngsters on a journey making and observing crystals, rock candy and more. Ms. Frizzle (my favorite character), their eccentric third grade teacher, spearheads all of the crystal capers in this colorful kit.
- observation chart
- magnifying glass
- petri dishes
- measuring cup
- and much more!
The simple at-home experiments included with this science kit are spelled out in a colorful instruction booklet which introduce elementary school-aged children to basic concepts in chemistry, physics, geology and mathematics! Here is a list (in my picture) of the included experiments in this kit.
Big Sis literally squeed when I broke out this kit so that we could work together. She may be super girly but she is really into science.
The first few experiments are the easiest and here she is observing ice crystals.
Some of the experiments need several days to complete so they even include a nifty little chart so your child can keep track of it all.
The Young Scientists Club's subscription kits are mailed monthly to thousands of children around the nation and the company's retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores. All of their kits have been very hot sellers in the Amazon STEM store and I have personally seen some of these kits at my local science center.
