I loved science when I was a kid, and even more so in high school. If I would have pursued a career is would definitely have included an element of science. To celebrate British Science Week, John Adams sent us one of their fantastic science sets to review. The kids were very excited when Booms, Bangs!, Fizzes arrived for them to have some fun with.
Booms, Bangs!, Fizzes comes with comes with everything you need to do 12 fun experiments at home. If you love noisy, fizzing, bubbling and explosive science then this is the set for you. You could explode a rock salt depth charge or erupt an underwater volcano, the choice is yours.
The set is suitable for ages 8+ and requires adult supervision. Although Daisy and Jake are younger than this they were supervised at all times and really enjoyed watching the parts of the experiments they couldn’t do themselves.
Booms, Bangs!, Fizzes is available from Amazon and all other good toy retailers with an RRP of £24.99.
The experiments we could choose from were:
Jet engine balloon screamer
Bike pump rocket ship
Erupting underwater volcano
Confetti shower explosion
Exploding lunch bag
Rock salt depth charge
Mad fizzing potions 1 and 2
We decided to do two of the experiments from the set starting with the underwater volcano. I really like that the set comes with everything you need to do each experiment. Daisy loved being able to measure out the fizzy drink and add the bicarbonate of soda. Both kids were delighted when the volcano erupted.
Next it was on to the jet engine balloon screamer we set it up the length of the hall so it had lots of room to zoom. Daisy and Jake each took turns trying to blow up the balloons and then setting them off. I wasn’t quite fast enough to take photo’s of the balloon zooming.
There are lots more experiments for us to try over the coming weeks. The kids really enjoyed the experiments we did and are excited to do some more.
