Frankie is a big fan of anything science related. He loves making potions and pulling things apart to see how they work. This can sometimes cause more than a little bit of mess and chaos!
So when we were asked by Learning Resources to try out there Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab I was more than happy to give it a go.
Beaker Creatures is a science kit for young children to be introduced to the wonders of science in a fun and educational way.
The kit took less than five minutes to put together and consists of a main tray with three chambers where the experiments take place.
The main experiment is to dissolve a pod which is pretty similar to a bath bomb inside the main chamber to extract the creature within.
To start the extraction we had to fill two syringes with water, place inside the other chambers and press down on the plungers to release the water into the main chamber. We did have a little bit of trouble getting this to work to begin with but once it got going the pod started to fizz and bubble away, allowing the creature to be released.
Frankie was super excited by the whole process and loved them trying to identify which creature he had found on the identification sheet.
Alongside this great activity there is also an instruction sheet containing another four experiments you can try out using products you can easily find around the home, including ‘alien slime’ which was of course a big hit!
Beaker Creatures was a great way to introduce simple science experiments to the children in a fun and pretty mess free way!
