Test Tube Wonders – Science for 4 Year Olds

Rainbow Crystals - Test Tube Wonders

So how did K’Boo my four year old come to be making Rainbow Crystals from a Science Kit?

O’Pops got a ‘Science Kit’ from his Auntie over in Canada – she used to be a Science Teacher over here.

O’Pops is more of a lover of football, bless him! And every time K’Boo has seen the kit in his bedroom, she’s wanted to open it up and  find out what it does.  It does look intreguing to a child (just not to our O’Pops at the moment – the footie, on the other hand!).

So what happens next? How did she make Rainbow Crystals?

I could tell you how to do this – but I thought to give it to you in pictures was much more fun.  There is no better way than to let your child do the project themselves (with a little bit of supervision – like with cooking). A picture tells a thousand words – so there is something of an essay in all of these to follow ….

About HonieMummy (HonieBuk)

Mum of two girls (16 & 9) and step-Mum to one boy (15). All of whom are bright, fun-loving, creative and musical and make me proud and despite his disability (CP) my step-son and family face challenges with a smile and the will to succeed. Love to travel (mainly US/Canada/Scotland), passionate about photography, music is a must, always in HoniesKitchen, love a bit of crafting and I'm learning to knit (maybe even crochet). I'm a networking junkie and of course there has to be time (quality time) with my amazing family! I like to Blog infrequently whenever it takes my fancy and I don't mind sharing my ups and downs, advice and querky ideas with you all. I will mostly post recipes and photos of food, family and travel. I love to review products that my family and me would use - I kinda consider it my 'duty' to let you all know if something is as good as it says on the tin and a 'must buy' product, that all families should know about. Find these in HonieLikes. If you like what you see, please tell me - I work hard at these things :o)
