Summary

Step-by-step instructions for 30 science experiments using everyday household objects and materials.

This book teaches children about the basic principles of science through 30 exciting experiments and crafts that can be done at home, using everyday objects and materials around you. Why do bubbles hold their shape? How does an electric circuit work? What makes popcorn pop? Can an egg bounce? If you thought that science could only be practised wearing white coats in a sterile laboratory, think again! A brilliant way to link the STEM/STEAM themes being taught at school back to your home in a fun and fascinating way. Perfect for budding scientists who love to ask... 'why?' Activities include making slime, hot ice, baking soda fizz bombs, coloured milk, making your own crystals, invisible ink, soda bottle ecosystem and many more. AGES: 5 to 11 AUTHORS: Laura Minter and Tia Williams are two creative mums based in Sussex, UK. They started Little Button Diaries, their award-winning crafting and baking blog in 2013 to show that having children doesn't mean you have to stop doing the things you love. Laura and Tia also write craft tutorials for craft superstore Hobbycraft and they have written many books for GMC Publications, including The Superhero Craft Book, The Dinosaur Craft Book, The Mermaid Craft Book, The Horrible Craft Book and The Big Book of Dressing Up.
