Nickelodeon Experimake science kits by Addo brand are on sale at the Entertainer toy stores and online. They are part of the Entertainers #backtoschool toys and there is lots of choice. Kids can make their own perfumes, soaps or lipsticks. For something a little more gross there is sludge and slime. Or they can learn the wonders of water and even make sweets. For the braver parents there is a kitchen experiments kit and explosions and eruptions. So much choice for young scientists.
Okay so the box is slightly misleading I think. We won’t get crystals looking like those pretty big ones pictured all over it, but we can get smaller crystals if the instructions are followed. – Think about it; your not going to get big shiny expensive crystals from a £10 set are you?
Now this set contains a fair few different chemicals and crystal making ingredients so obviously it needs to be kept out of the way of my curious 4 year old. I don’t think anything in this is particularly dangerous or lethal as they are suitable for 8 years plus: but it can get messy.
The crystals do take a while to form, a few days for small ones and longer for something a bit more spectacular. We have to let them grow and set and just wait.
