Though I spent a lot of time thinking about how to properly explain science in a way that is comprehensible to non-scientists, my biggest Achilles heel is my lack of experience in explaining things at a level that kids can understand. Fortunately, there are a growing number of resources out there to help people do kid-friendly science! One that just came out last month is Kitchen Science Lab for Kids, by Liz Heinecke.

Heinecke has been a long-time advocate for kid-friendly science experiments, an

Great, great resource to have around the house for moms, dads, home schoolers, nannies, or anyone that enjoys doing fun and creative activities with children. My boyfriend's daughter picked this out for him for Christmas, and they both love it. All the experiments are explained in great (but not excessive) detail, and many of the experiments I recognize as simplified versions of experiments I have done in university science labs. Cannot wait to put these experiments all to test! ...more

Firstly I'd like to thank Netgalley for providing me with an E-ARC copy of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids in exchange for an honest review. The following thoughts are completely my own.

This is a great cookbook that has it's main focus not only on the food but on the science of cooking and education children as well. Having done a number of edible science experiments with students before, I have seen first-hand how fascinating and fun they find it all. I like that the food she chose was not only f

I bought this a couple of years ago and my kids beg--yes, literally beg--for me to do more activities from it. Yes, I realize you could probably find them all on Pinterest, but I love books and I love having all the info handy and put together nicely and where my kids can mark which ones they want to do next. I highly recommend it. We're definitely going to check out other books in the series now that I know they exist. How did I not know that before??! ...more

I really liked how this book incorporated the scientific aspect of cooking and baking. That said, I don’t think that many of the recipes were accessible for most families, simply because they required obscure ingredients that cannot be found in a grocery store.

There are some basic, easy fun experiments in this book. Many can be done with basic household items or easy to find at the store. I can’t wait to try some of these out with the kids at the library.
I love how affordable these are for the quality of experiments/crafts. Some of the projects include: rock candy, marshmallow slingshots, egg in a bottle, bottle rockets, window sprouts, homemade petri plates, and cornstarch goo. Some of these just look so fun and are not very complicated.

So impressed with this book! Not only are the experiments fun & straightforward, the author also gives the scientific reasoning of why they work as they do. I highly recommend this!
