Product Description:

Rainy days, snowy days or just plain fun days call for some good, hands-on science-type projects. This isn't hard core textbook science but projects that will help your little one think about science and nature in an entertaining way. Included are 57 easy projects from acid rain, rubber chicken bones, rainbow milk, butterfly feeder, ice cream in a bag, feeding the birds, and more. Each project is printed in a blackline format so the little ones can color the pages and maybe put together their own science notebook of the projects. A minimal amount of background information with the scientific principle is offered about the subject (a few lines to a couple of paragraphs), a list of supplies (household items and recyclables), and the procedure to follow are included. You could use this book as a framework for science for your little ones or just use it to sneak some learning into your fun. 75 pages, pb. ~ Donna

Publisher Description:

With this charmingly illustrated book — and a little help from a parent or other grownup — kids can conduct fun-filled science experiments using recycled household items. They'll learn about sound waves by transforming ordinary cardboard tubing into music-making didgeridoos and kazoos. Other eye-opening activities involve building a battery with pennies and tinfoil, playing a fishing game that illustrates the principles of magnetic force, and using food coloring and fizzy antacid tablets to make a lava lamp.

Additional projects include discovering the differences between crickets and grasshoppers, mixing up a batch of invisible ink, and learning how to clone plants. Easy-to-follow instructions explain how to make a butterfly feeder, a birdbath, eggshell planters, a windsock, a string telephone, and other items. Each activity features a simple explanation of its underlying scientific principles.
