Steve Spangler Science Kits make hands-on science fun for kids. We recently received our first monthly Spanger Science Club box, called Kitchen Concoctions, for review. As you probably guessed, all these cool science experiments take place in the kitchen!
Our Kitchen Concoctions kit included Science Club Items needed to complete each experiment. My kids thought the most exciting items in our box were the super cool Safety glasses, a graduated plastic cylinder and fizzer tablets.
The kit also comes with two helpful booklets – one for the Adult Helper that explains how to help kids perform the fun science experiments and a Lab Report booklet for the kids with step-by-step instructions, plus helpful full-color photos.
I really liked that at the top of each experiment was a “Tick Tock!” box that tells you approximately how long each experiment will take. Five of the Kitchen Concoctions experiments take 15 minutes or less (each) and a sixth experiment takes about 40 minutes.
The Kitchen Concoctions experiments need a few things that you probably already have in your kitchen. It is mostly simple stuff like Water, Honey, Milk, and spoons. The only thing I didn’t have on hand was 2-3 Red Cabbage leaves for one of the longer experiments.
We started off with two really cool science experiments: Dancing Raisins and Density Review. My son really wanted to use the graduated cylinder and the fizzy tablets — so those are the ones we picked to try first. I read the directions while he poured in the ingredients and made his scientific observations about what was happening.
Simple science experiments are a great way to spend time with your child. Both of us end up learning something, and having a great time doing it.
The coolest part was that after we were finished with the Density Review experiment, my son did not want to clean out the graduated cylinder until after he had the chance to show it to his dad. So, we left it out on the counter until dad got home a few hours later.
I overheard my son telling his dad step-by-step what we had done in the experiment, and he even remembered the right vocabulary words (like density and buoyancy.) He really was paying attention to everything I was saying — which was reading exactly what was in the Steve Spangler science kit booklets.
The Spangler Science Club STEM kits are hands-on science activities for kids that come in the mail once a month. There are three levels of kits geared towards students ages 7-14 years old. Younger kids will need an adult helper, but older kids can be self-guided through the experiments.
