What It Is
Mike Adamick's Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments is a 192-page book that includes 30 kitchen-sink science experiments the whole family can do together. Whether kids want to know why leaves change colors or why they get dizzy when they spin around, this book helps answer those curious questions with engrossing projects. The book includes step-by-step instructions and photographs for all kinds of experiments, such as exploding candy and floating ice. Each of these experiments can be tossed together with items around the house or with inexpensive supplies from the grocery store.
Is It Fun?
If you're a fan of science experiments and want to do some with your kids, there are a lot of experiments in this book. Most of them are easy to do with really good instructions and pictures, and a lot of the experiments you've probably heard of.
Who It’s For
Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments isn't age-graded, but we think it's best for kids ages 5 and up to do with a parent. This is not just for dads, however. We know a lot of moms who would love some of the experiments in this book, and girls will like these experiments just as much as boys.
What To Be Aware Of
Some of these experiments you could look up online, but you're not going to print them out and give those as a gift. This is a very giftable book.
