    There’s no better way to keep a tree in the house than with a Magic Tree. These small paper trees start out brown with dyed branches. After standing the tree in the non-toxic chemical mix provided, the tree begins to show its “true colors.”  30 minutes later, colored buds form on it. In 5-6 hours, you have a miniature tree with pink, orange, yellow, or green crystal blossoms (four possible colors; no color choice available but if you order more than one, you'll assort). Note for Mom: These are fascinating and beautiful - but very fragile - they are for observing, not handling.

    The Chemistry 60 Kit will provide hours of experiment fun without harmful chemicals. Topics explored include: chemical reactions, acids and bases, chromatography, crystal growing, surface tension, solutions and colloids, expansion of gases, magnetism, optics, growing plants, and much more. While some activities will require adult supervision, many of them can be done independently. Most items are provided in the kit, but you will need to gather household items to complete some of the activities.

    Each activity is colorfully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, and a very simple explanation for each activity is offered at the end. Students will test for acids by using red cabbage juice, write a magic message using lemon juice, build an erupting volcano, see and hear gas expand, grow salt crystals, and much more.

    Kit contains sodium hydrogen carbonate, iron powder, sand, plastic test tube rack, plastic test tubes, test tube holder, stopper, magnifying glass, green felt tip pen, plastic beaker, 25 milliliter measuring cup with lid, safety goggles, measuring spoon, eye dropper, funnel, tweezers, magnet in holder, washers, paper clip, pH scale, pH paper, thread, mirror, drinking straw, modeling dough, rubber band, Styrofoam, and instruction booklet. Stir up some ChemFun and learn some basic chemistry! ~ Donna

    Some kits only give you enough supplies to grow a few crystals, but this kit is the exception. The contents of this kit offers enough to do 12 or more different crystal activities – Plaster of Paris, 3 small plastic Petri dishes, plastic containers, plastic molds, measuring cups, measuring spoons, tweezers, plastic funnel, eye dropper, thread, granite base rocks, magnifying glass (plastic), display stand, protective goggles, blank labels, monoammonium phosphate, aluminum potassium sulphate, and an instruction booklet. Remember that these are real chemicals, so follow the safety instructions along with adult supervision. You will get to grow 8-sided crystals from the aluminum potassium sulphate, needle shaped crystals from the monoammonium phosphate. These chemicals are included in the kit in a variety of colors – emerald green, violet amethyst, pink quartz, aquamarine blue, golden citrine, frosty diamond, rama quartz, red ruby, and orange. Along with the crystals you grow with the chemicals, you will learn how to grow salt and sugar crystals, stalactites, and learn about crystal structure. ~ Donna

    Where were chemistry kits like this when I was a kid? It has some excellent experiments, a manual that plainly explains chemistry concepts, and it comes with a chemistry station to put together! Some of the awesome experiments include making a fire extinguisher on a small scale, making color-changing slime, growing salt crystals, making “invisible” ink, and creating an underwater volcano. Some experiments are more basic and recognizable, such as a self-inflating balloon. Even the less “fun” experiments, however, are quite cool because the manual explains why the substances involved work the way they do, and later experiments may use a concept learned in previous ones. Rather than the “throw away” kits that just contain some experiments, but not a lot of useful information, I feel kids can come out with a lot of foundational chemistry knowledge after going through this one! For instance, in the classic “oil and water” experiment, the manual explains that the reason water does not mix with oil is due to water molecules being polar and oil molecules being nonpolar, which is due to the sizes of the atoms that make up the molecules. It then explains that they can be mixed if an emulsifier (dish detergent) is added. This knowledge is then applied to a later experiment with moving colors, which travel because of an emulsifier and the attractions caused by it. As the manual clearly explains the concepts that go along with the experiments, children are able to learn and apply chemistry concepts at the same time. The 20 included experiments can all be done with the enclosed materials and common household items. - Janine

    There is always time for experiments, whether you have an hour, a day or a week! Presented in a 2-page spread, each experiment provides background scientific information, supply list, step by step instructions and the science behind it. Uniquely, the table of contents identifies the length of time to complete the experiments with a fun, colorful test tube graphic and key so parents can wisely select the activity based on time available.

      Beginning with the scientific process, experiments are divided into 4 categories: Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Technology/Engineering. A section is also dedicated to Science Fair success stories. A sampling of activities includes testing clouds for salt, comparing organic and genetically modified tomatoes, growing crystals, and creating turbine power. Experiments use common household items. Detailed index. 185pgs, hc. ~ Deanne
