Description

Little crafters will become little scientists as they explore, experiment, make, and create their way through every STEAM project.

Learn through play with this hands-on crafty science book that introduces inquisitive children to the wonders of science through craft projects with everyday objects.

The Simple Science Activity Book contains more than 20 fun-filled craft projects, each accompanied by a ‘What’s the science?’ section explaining how key scientific concepts work. Children can enjoy getting stuck in and learn how to make a toy raft and discover what makes their boat float, or how to create an ice sculpture and learn about the changing states of solids and liquids.  They’ll discover the world around them like they’ve never seen it before!

This hands-on science activity book for children offers:

- Over 20 activities that are easy for children aged 5-7 to do on their own, with only a handful of steps requiring an adult to help.
- A range of different projects, including art, photography, crafts, cooking, and gardening, all using everyday objects found in and around the home.
- An introduction to key skills like problem-solving, observation, and hands-on learning through fun scientific experiments. 

With The Simple Science Activity Book, difficult concepts like buoyancy, gravity, and aerodynamics become meaningful and accessible to young children through play. Award-winning author Jane Bull combines art, craft, and cooking activities with solid scientific learning, showing children that science, technology, engineering, art, and maths are all around us – and in everything we make and do!
