By Blog Editor Susan Wells

We have reached Day #8 in our 12 Days of Wonder. Today’s spotlight science toy is Big Bag of Science.

Steve Spangler Science is celebrating the 12 Days of Wonder and highlighting our top 12 science toys and kits that are perfect to put under the tree. As blog editor, social media coordinator and mom of two budding scientists, I will share my review of each product. Steve Spangler Science also found 12 respected, popular mom bloggers to each test and review one of our 12 science gifts. I will include a link to their blogs and their honest reviews of each gift idea at the bottom of this post. Today, Jill from Single Mom on a Budget shares her review. The kit is also the Deal of the Day. So check our blog every day for the next few weeks to learn all about our 12 Days of Wonder.

My Review: 

If you know a child who loves science, this is the kit for them. Big Bag of Science comes with materials for 70 experiments and activities. It is a true Lab in a Bag.

This kit takes the very best of Steve Spangler experiments and puts them together in a bag that both kids and adults can spend hours using to explore science. Start off easy with a chemistry color science activity. Next, mix those colors and learn about color mixing.

Each experiment comes with information about what type of science it is and what skills you will use. Each experiment also builds on the next so you start simple and step through experiments learning a lesson with each one.

In this kit, you can do popular Steve Spangler experiments – Slime, UV Beads, Gravi-Goo, Insta-Snow, Tornado Tubes, Color Changing Paper, Iron for Breakfast, String Slime, polymers, soda geysers and so much more.

It’s important to note that this kit contains a lot of science tools and materials, but you will need to supply some household and kitchen materials to do all of the experiments – materials like bowls, cabbage, plastic cups, spoons, rubber bands, paper towels, etc.

Here’s what is included:

  • 30-page instruction book
  • Insta-Snow® powder
  • Water Gel™
  • Gravity Goo™ powder
  • Garbled marbles
  • Superabsorbent cubes
  • True Colors™ tablets
  • Color changing paper
  • Superabsorbent crystals
  • String Slime
  • String Slime activator
  • Slime goo
  • Energy beads
  • Geyser Tube™
  • Twister tube
  • Magnifier Glass
  • Petri Dish
  • Two Giant Test Tubes & Lids with stand
  • Three Large Test Tubes & Lids
  • Color Wheel
  • Shaker Cup with Lid
  • pH Indicator
  • Color Changing Paper
  • Non-Newtonian Powder & Quicksand Powder
    and so much more
