In my household, we are big fans of educational games and experiments that could be done in the confines of our home. Since Hayley just started her last year of preschool at 5, she has become completely intrigued with learning about so many various topics such as our environment, weather, health, and more. If your child is like mine, you will want to check out The Young Scientists Club, which features award winning science kits for kids.
What I love about this company, is their motto that children should be exposed to science at a very young age. I was one who absolutely loved science, so much so, that I went on to major in it in college. I love that I can now “teach” Hayley through the products found at the Young Scientist Club. One of the great Young Scientist Club products we received was The Magic School Bus Weather Lab.
The Magic School Bus Weather Lab is based on the popular show and books of the same title. While we have not seen the show, Hayley was excited to get started on her science projects! She was immediately intrigued by all the projects that were in the big weather lab school bus. It got her interested from the time I opened it up.
Right off the bat, they have a large 12 page colorful manual that details many of the different experiments and topics addressed in the Magic School Bus. The 12 fun and educational experiments revolve around magnets, acids/bases, human body, weather station, water, lights/rainbow, volcanoes, fossils/stars/planets, bacteria/fungi, and solids/liquids/fungi.
Hayley had a blast with so many of the experiments. Since she just turned 5, I had to show her out to put together some of it, but after a couple of times, she was a pro at doing the experiments. She loved making a compass and a pinwheel. While we have not tried out making rain yet, that is on our agenda next.
This holiday season, be sure to check out The Magic School Bus Weather Lab from the Young Scientist Club. It would be a wonderful addition to your child’s learning materials this school year. Whether this is a gift for your child or his/her friend, it will be the hit of the season! Be sure to pick up the Magic School Weather Lab today and get ready to go on a wild experimenting ride! The Magic School Bus Weather Lab is for ages 5+ and sells for $39.99.
