Cool Science Experiments for Kids
For any occasion consider an educational gift for your children. Our daughter bought this book for our grandson Bobby.
He keeps this book at our house, whenever he comes over to visit, or spent the night we try to always take some time to do some experiments with him.
Bobby likes doing experiments from this book or actually any book. My wife and I take great pleasure in watching him learn new things.
This book contains 365 fun and amazing experiments, and was written and tested by teachers. There are six different sections of the book.
All activities are designed to use common everyday household items, of course if you don’t have that common item handy you’ll have to go out and buy it most of them are inexpensive.
The book is illustrated by Glen Singleton, Glen is well known for his illustrations kids cartoons and popular children’s books.
There are six sections in this book. Each section lists a series of symbols indicating things like adult supervision for all ages, or because of the tools needed for the experiment, such as scissors.
