Fizz, Glow In The Dark and Being Creative

Estimated reading time: 10 minutes

Science Kit.

This week, my son and I decided to do a few science experiments at home, using the Learn and Climb Boom! Fun with Science kit that I bought. Furthermore, this kit has more than 60 experiments of educational fun. The science kit also comes with both an instruction manual and DVD to explain each experiment.

Making a Bouncy Ball.

First, together, we made a glow in the dark bouncy ball following the instructions.

Glow in the Dark Keychain.

Secondly, my son used water polymer beads for the next science experiment, and also a glow in the dark potion to make a glow in the dark keychain.

Colour Absorbing Polymers.

Next, we completed another science experiment called Colour Absorbing Polymers.

He then mixed different textures creating a sensory activity, which he explored using his hands. (He washed his hands afterwards).

Acid and Bases Science.

Afterwards, he chose a dramatic experiment for us to do called Acids and Bases. Additionally, we were fascinated by the fizz reaction.

Science Experiment Conclusion.

Overall, my son thoroughly had fun using the science kit, and we have plenty more experiments to do in future. Lots of educational fun too! It was also good practice for my son, pouring the liquid into the test tubes and picking up small objects.

Arts and Craft.

Pipe Cleaners.

First of all, my son created his very own fidget toy called Billy, which I thought was very resourceful. I think he is onto something here. He used pipe cleaners to make him.

Cardboard Craft.

He also made a cardboard creation called Nedgar. Although, I honestly don’t know how he comes up with these names, but it’s very creative.

Papier Mâché.

After, we made papier Mâché by mixing water and PVA glue in a bowl. We then followed this up by blowing up a balloon then dipped strips of newspaper into the mixture.

We then covered the balloon and left the covered balloon overnight.
