The Magic School Bus Growing Crazy Crystals

Hi Neighbors!

The Young Scientists Club recently sent us "The Magic School Bus Growing Crazy Crystals" kit.  This kit is perfect for children ages 5 and up.  Younger children will need assistance and guidance, but older children (like my 14 year old) can complete some of the experiments on their own.  What child doesn't love experimenting in the kitchen?  I still remember some of the projects my mother let me try at home, like putting a turkey wishbone in vinegar until it was like rubber.

Using the Growing Crazy Crystals Kit will be fun for homeschoolers and other children alike.  The instruction booklet that comes with the kit has about 12 different experiments at varying levels of difficulty.  Some are as simple as looking at salt and sugar under a magnifying glass, while others have you growing crystals.  We completed a couple of experiments, as you can see in the pictures.

Almost everything needed is included in your kit.  Many of the other items will be found in your kitchen cabinets, like salt, sugar, baking soda, etc.  The measuring cup, magnifying glass, craft sticks and other such items are included in the kit.

The Young Scientists Club is a monthly subscription service that  your child will love to find in the mailbox.  Each month a new science kit with new, exciting experiments will arrive.  The kits cost $19.99 per month.  If you are not interested in a monthly subscription, or just want to try one of the retail kits out, you can find them a specialty store and in the Amazon STEM store.

The girls really had fun trying out some of these experiments.   We are only sharing the one where we made ice crystals, because of course, we want you to experience this yourself!  It makes great family time.  We enjoyed seeing the tiny ice crystals that formed on top of the ice.  Reminds you of snow flakes, sort of.  The experiments are so easy to do, and the directions are simple to follow.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
