Did you know that it’s British Science Week from 6-15th March? Erin has really shown an interest in science and experiments over the last couple of months so we couldn’t wait to try out some of Learning Resources’ science toys and resources, some of which are new! Erin was sent a couple of products to celebrate British Science Week and for her to try out something new.
Usually, when I ask Erin what she wants to do she says experiments. We’re not very good at thinking things up ourselves though and anything we try to do at home becomes a big mess because we don’t have the right equipment. The Lab Set comes filled with everything a little scientist could need such as beakers, goggles, tweezers and tubes to mix things in!
We have had other science sets before for Erin but unfortunately they have either all been too difficult for her or they required a lot of extras to be purchased for the experiments. The Learning Resources Science Lab comes with a pack of experiment cards and they’re all really age appropriate. The set is aimed at children aged 3+ and I would say that Erin could do all of them with only a bit of help from a grown up.
All of the pieces in the set are quiet large so even if your child is at the youngest age recommended they will still be able to pick everything up and use nearly everything. As the pieces are quite large, and there aren’t lots of them, you can easily find anything you need for the experiments. The cards lay everything out really clearly so you know exactly what you need before you start.
This is not only a really fun set for children to play with but the experiments are great. Nothing is too messy (apart from maybe 1 or 2) and as long as you have paper towels to hand or a wipe clean sheet laid down you will be fine. I think something I worried about before with science experiments is that there would be mess everywhere but I don’t really have that with the Learning Resources Science Lab. Of course, you do need to be careful when using food colouring but because of this we put a sheet down under the chairs and table as well as on top!
Something we love to do as a family is to explore outside. We try to find holidays where we can do something different like go for walks in the woods. A lot of families do this on a regular basis but as we don’t drive it can be tricky for us. However, when we do get to go out somewhere Erin always seems amazed. No matter where you go though there is always something cool to look at so the Kidnoculars are ideal to take out and about.
On a recent holiday to Center Parcs, the Learning Resources Kidnoculars were the ideal thing to take away with us. Erin got to walk around in the woods while we explored and looked out to see what animals we could find. There are loads of squirrels, rabbits, deer and ducks at Center Parcs so she loved spotting things!
Learning Resources’ range of toys include so many educational options and we love discovering something new with them!
