"Mason Jar Science" by Jonathan Adolph Offers Up 40 Slimy, Squishy and Cool Experiments Kids (and Adults) Will Love -- Think Slime, Goo and More! (Review)

It seems like nowadays slime and science experiments that get messy are all the craze for kids. Just look at the upcoming hot toys for this holiday season you and you see slime and goo way up on the list.  Then, take a look at the price and you will have to do a double take as some toys are in the $50+ range for slime kits.  If these toys are not in your budget, or you are like me and don't see spending that type of money on slime or goo that will end up falling on the floor, getting ruined, or stop being played with after a few times, then why not consider the alternative, "Mason Jar Science," which is only $11.24. 

This book is filled with 40 slimy, squishy, super-cool experiments, all of which you do inside of a mason jar. Kids can have fun creating a lava lamp, water prism, balloon barometer and even a compass, all within a mason jar -- which many of us have laying around the house, or will be picking up to do canning this time of year.

Each and every science experiment in this book, written by Jonathan Adolph offers "small-scale ways to illustrate the big-picture principles of chemistry, botany, biology, physics, and more."  So, not only will kids be having fun making slime, miniature clouds, tiny tornadoes, and more, but they will be also learning then science behind it as well.  :-)  As a homeschool family I especially love books like this as I can work them into what we are learning in our schooling, and my girls both learn better with hands on learning. 

I was sent this book last month, and we are almost done with all the experiments.  While the goo and slime experiments  were favorites of my girls, they also enjoyed making cornstarch quicksand, very berry ink, making a bug vacuum, as well as learning about atmospheric pressure in the unspillable jar experiment.  

What is so great about this book, which would make for a great gift for kids this holiday season, or even to gift to your child's teacher, or pick up and use if you homeschool, is that most of the supplies needed you will have around the house.  So, you will not go crazy making a long list of items to pick up, just to complete these fun mason jar science experiments and projects.

You can learn more about this book, as well as see sites where you can purchase it by visiting https://www.workman.com/products/mason-jar-science today.

Then, get ready to roll up your sleeves and have fun learning about science through hands-on experiments kids of all ages will enjoy, and will want to do time and again.
