We saw this and instantly thought…oooooohhh, bet we’ll be able to blow something up! We were right! We blew it up, created weather, planted a garden, made a lava lamp and a tornado - all in one afternoon. The directions in this thorough and cleverly packaged kit are easy to read and understand. We loved that the author explained why it was working and “what was going on”. Materials not included were found easily in either our kitchen or garage. Some experiments can be completed in a few minutes; others can be worked on for longer periods of time.
