My Review

Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder Is such an exciting book. So many things to do with kids, perfect for a rainy day, or snow days like we had last week! The book is wonderfully illustrated and with many diagrams to help you along. There is quite a lot of text to go alongside the experiments so I would recommend it for ages 8+ children any younger would struggle with the text I would think.

As an adult interested in Science I found reading the book, very refreshing and rewarding, it’s too young for baby girl to take part in, but she happily sat next to me looking at the pages as I was reading along.

  1. I’ve seen a great one with dye, washing up liquid and something else I can’t remember. Makes foam that shoots up!

  2. Volcanoes with Coca Cola and Bicarbonate of Soda or Coke with Mentos. Anything messy or loud is great fun with kids.

  3. we want to do the bubbles on snow experiment, sadly we discovered it after the thaw so we will try it when it snows (next year maybe) turns the bubble into an ice ball
