Mouse with whiskers
This kept the kids busy for about 10 minutes. I know they could have taken things a lot further, but I think they knew that I was going to let them eat the marshmallows at the end. So the "science/learning part got a bit rushed and neglected.http://www.dk.co.uk/nf/Book/BookDisplay/0,,9781405356183,00.html
Although there are endless science experiments on the internet, for £6.99 this book is totally worth it. Everything is simple. There are a few things that we have already done,but with different approaches. The "learning bit" is explained in a very easy way so that it is not daunting; perfect for me, not just "Mini Scientists".
