As a former teacher and a mom of three little ones, I love to find new activities to do with the kids. It's especially on days like we've been having with rain, snow and sleet that it's nice to have fun and educational things we can do together indoors. That's why I was excited to learn about fun new science kits from The Young Scientists Club.

We are a big fan of Clifford The Big Red Dog, and happy to learn that he and Ms Frizzle (from The Magic School Bus) had teamed up to teach kids science, helping them discover bubbles, rainbows and experiments by the kitchen sink. With a 5 year old and 3 year old, I was especially drawn to the Clifford The Big Red Dog Bubble Science Kit and thrilled to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review it! Afterall, who better to teach children about the science behind soapy spheres than the beloved Clifford himself!?!

Oh, and did I mentionthat the entire line of Clifford Science kits has recently won the Tillywig Toy & Media Brain Child Award?! This is an award given only to exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning. If you ask me, that's a pretty great award and just one more reason to get excited about this Bubble Science Kit!

The Bubble Science Kit arrived and both Kaelyn and Kaden were begging to get it out.
Of course, I couldn't say no...I was just as excited to play and learn with bubbles as they were! As a teacher getting the bubbles in the sensory table was one of my favorite things to do. It was neat to watch the kids explore and discover with bubbles. In our house, having a big sensory table is not ideal...so I was thrilled when I opened the box to find everything we would need to have our own bubble fun anytime we want to!

The kit includes everything from a manual with activity ideas to bubbles, pipe cleaners, wands and even a lap tray to put the bubbles in! I was very impressed to see all that was included, and that it really is multiple activities all in one box. YAY!
To get started we pulled out the lab tray and all our "tools" and began looking through the manual. There are so many fun and educational experiments to do with bubbles. Over time we've pretty much done them all and never get bored with them! With all this snow we've been getting (yes snow in May!), Kaden and I have been enjoying pulling out the Bubble Science Kit while Kaelyn's at school. He has a couple of favorite activities that he enjoys most.
One of them is a Jumping Pepper experiment where pepper is sprinkled in water, and then a straw dipped in bubbles touches the pepper and it separates/jumps away. He thinks this is pretty neat and thanks to the user-friendly manual I was able to explain to him that when the soap touches the water, the surface broke causing the pepper to jump to the side. So fun to enjoy activities and learn at the same time!!
Another one he has a lot of fun with is the fun with funnels experiments. We simply poured some of the included bubbles in the lab tray and used each end of the funnel to see what kind of bubbles we could make. He enjoyed the little bubbles that came out of the funnel and blowing them all over the place. It's a fantastic activity that can be done both indoors and out!
There are so many more fun activities in the activity book that we've tried and loved. But, the neat thing is...with all that's included the experiment options are really endless. It's open-ended and gives children the opportunity to learn through discovery and exploration. I love it and so do they!
As I said, there are other fun science kits to choose from as well. Young Scientists will feel like real scientists when they use the Rainbow Science Kit's colorful lab tray and other tools to perform their experiments. There's also the Kitchen Science Kit, featuring an exploding Volcano which looks like a lot of fun too!

For kids who are a little older (5+), there's the Weather Lab and The Wonders of Nature Kit which give Young Scientists the opportunity to make a tornado in a bottle, swirl a paper snake, recreate the water cycle and so much more!

As you can see, with these five science kits there is a lot of learning that can take place. It gives parents, homeschoolers and teachers great hands-on activities all in one box! We'll definitely be getting more for our home. And, at just $19.99-$39.99 a piece, it's affordable to get any one of the new kits from The Young Scientists Club this Spring!

Buy It: You can purchase the Bubble Science Kit for $19.99.
