This is the book that has inspired activities such as the ever-popular Rainbow Paper and the spooky Witches’ Brew. If you like those activities, you are going to LOVE the other treasures you find in 100 Science Experiments.

Like the other experiment books, all of the activities in this book are relatively easy and require materials that most people already have lying around the house.

The experiments in this book may be for a slightly older audience (age 8 or 9), though most, if not all, of the experiments can be done with younger kids with the help of an adult. My six-year-old, and even my three-year-old, love every activity we have done from this book so far.

50 Science Things to Make & Do is the book that inspired such activities as Summer Ice Slush, Magic Milk, and an Easy Summer Science Experiment.

Each activity requires materials that most families have already at home with easy-to-follow directions that many children can do on their own. Each activity also contains a little blurb about what is going on scientifically (the why’s and how’s behind the cool little project).

The recommended age for this science book is 6 years and up, but with a parent’s help a child as young as 2 or 3 can really enjoy and participate in the activities.
