Bubble Wands

Bubble wands are every child’s favorite toy, but did you know that they can also teach your kiddo about the principles of light and color? Indeed, you can demonstrate to your child how bubbles refract the light around them and produce different colors of the rainbow. Additionally, your child can learn about surface tension and how bubbles form while experimenting with different ratios of soap and water.

Magnets are an essential (and exciting!) tool in scientific exploration. With magnets, your child can conduct experiments to check which objects are attracted to the magnet and which ones are not. Your child can also learn about magnetic poles, how magnets interact with electricity, and how they can stick to objects without any physical contact.
