The Lovereading4Kids comment

Doing exactly what it says on the tin, this book is indeed packed with things for kids to do with science and the great news is that all 101 of them are fun and generally easy to do, and that they can be created from craft materials or items that all of us will have readily to hand. The instructions are straightforward and written in a conspiratorial style that positively encourages children to ‘create mayhem’ while on each page a paragraph called ‘The Sciencey Bit’ explains the scientific process behind each experiment. Diagrams and colour photos make it more accessible and attractive to look at too. With activities that can be carried out indoors and outdoors, this will be great for the Easter and summer holidays. ~ Andrea Reece

101 Brilliant Things for Kids to Do with Science by Dawn Isaac

From bestselling kids' activity author Dawn Isaac comes this exciting new volume full of creative (and occasionally outrageous) ideas for for budding young scientists.

This is a fun and engaging collection of 101 kids’ activities, each of which is linked to science. Most of the activities can be completed with little or no adult supervision (perfect for the Easter holidays) and any materials needed are either in the store cupboard, cheap or junk!

Whether your child is crazy about chemistry or bananas about biology (or, let's face it, just likes making a mess), this book is choc-a-block full of experiments and projects that will get kids really excited about science - and all without going anywhere near a TV, tablet or computer screen.
