Start the New Year with a BOOM!

I received product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

My boys have always been big in technology and building things. My daughter on the other hand is all about science and experiments. I am totally clueless about science but thankfully there are some great kits out that are basically an all-in-one.

STEM at Play is a series of products that feature different areas of science. Whether you have a child interested in magnets, rockets, chemistry, electricity or another area of science, the STEM at Play series has a kit. I received the STEM at Play “BOOM!” kit which offers hours of fun in combustion. Yes things that go BOOM!

What I love about the STEM at Play kits is they contain all the instructions and many of the tools to go through various science experiments. The STEM at Play “BOOM!” kit features 25 experiments for science-based play including.

Kids can explore the scientific principles of:

  • Fizzy bombs
  • Inflate a balloon without blowing
  • Lava lamp
  • Birthday cake sparklers
  • Rocket balloon…and more!

My 7-year-old daughter was so excited to get this kit. We have been busy wrapping up the holidays and hockey season so we haven’t experimented yet with it, but I did open it up and make sure we will be prepared when we do open it. You will need additional household materials to complete the experiments.

The instructions are actually a 36-page fact-filled guide full of color pictures and information for hours of combustible fun in your own kitchen!
