Just Add Baking Soda and Just Add Fruits & Veggies Review (Griddly Games)

Just Add Baking Soda and Just Add Fruits & Veggies
What It Is

It started with milk, and now Griddly Games' line of Just Add science and art kits expands to baking soda and fruits and vegetables. Each of these kits offers multiple science and art experiments for the whole family.

With Just Add Baking Soda, you'll be making bath bombs, ornaments, a baking soda volcano, and more. The kit, packaged up like a box of baking soda, includes a bottle, a funnel, a silicon ice cube tray, a plastic dinosaur, squeezy bottles, an eye dropper, a balloon, a straw, syringes, a mold, latex gloves, food coloring, a star-shaped cookie cutter, white glue, paint, watercolor paper, wax paper, a paper clip, yarn, and instructions. All you have to add is baking soda - well, and a few other household items, depending on the experiment. For instance, to make the volcano, you'll also need flour, salt, cooking oil, warm water, dishwashing detergent, vinegar, and a baking dish.

With Just Add Fruits & Veggies, you'll make a lemon volcano, a potato battery, make art out of fruit and veggie stamps, and more. This kit includes food coloring, bamboo skewers, a star-shaped cookie cutter, an LED light, rubber bands, a black marker, paint, a paint brush, an alligator wire clip, and instructions. All you add is the fruit, vegetables, and other items from home as needed. The instructions tell you specifically what kind of fruit or veggie you need to complete each experiment. As some of the experiments involve the use of a knife, adult assistance will be required.

Is It Fun?

Kids will love the freedom to play with their food thanks to the experiments inside each of these kits. We like that it combines art and science, and gets kids thinking about everyday items in a new way. Plus, there are so many different experiments in each kit.

Who It’s For

Both science kits are for ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Each kit is sold separately.

Some of the experiments are messy. The food coloring will stain your hands and clothes.
