As parents we often think about extra tuition for our kids, but have you ever thought about experimenting with Hands On Science In The Home? Well, today we are showing our readers how to bring the fun back into learning by using Mr Shaha’s recipes for wonder children’s science book.
In Mr Shaha’s book, you can read all about why he became interested in Science. He’s story really inspired my Daughter and me to practice more Hands On Science In The Home and the results from our experiment amazed me more than I could have ever imagined. We opened our new science book and browse all the different experiments that could be done at home. My Daughter has taken an interest in volcanoes recently so naturally, anything that goes whizz, pop or bang is a winner in my Daughters book.
We chose to launch a rocket using a bottle and some vitamin C tablets from the medicine cupboard. My Daughter asked if she could design a label for her rocket and chose to draw volcanoes with seeping hot lava flowing out. This showed me how enthusiastic she was about experimenting with me at home.
We grabbed as many items as we could from Mr Shaha’s recipe list. The only item we did not have at home was a bottle with a sports cap. No worries there though as we thought it would be good to experiment using two different types of other plastic bottles.
Now that we had all of the essentials, it was time to head outside and follow the instructions for our experiment. And we did not get it right the first time, in fact, it took several attempts of measuring, pouring and shaking until we reached our desired result.
We used a handful of fizzy tablets in our final attempt to launch the rocket and this seemed to do the trick. Olivia was dressed for the experiment and we both stood back and waited patiently for our rocket to launch. When the rocket finally launched, it flew so high into the air and we both watched in amazement. My Daughters face showed a real sense of achievement and she asked to do more science experiments from the book again, very soon.
We both had a great time designing and experimenting around the kitchen table. I loved reading about Mr Shaha’s childhood and how he was intrigued by science. Mr Shaha’s book of science recipes is colourful and interesting. We love it. It will be a book that stays in our family for many years to come.
