If you have a child who love to ask “Why?” there is only one solution — the Magic School Bus Science Kits!
Seriously… both of my boys have been in love with Magic School Bus. And every time I think they’ve passed this phase, another one picks up. From the Magic School Bus videos to the different level of reading books, this series continues to be perfect for today’s curious kiddos. This post contains affiliate links.
On top of the typical ways you’re helping your child learn, I have to tell you about this AMAZING , HANDS-ON, YEAR-LONG SCIENCE JOURNEY!
Magic School Bus Science Kits
For All the Kids Who Love to Ask “Why?”
My youngest son is a kid who would ask the question WHY all day long if we let him. Even in 2nd grade, this kid’s mind just doesn’t stop! Neither does his love of Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus.
We love following Ms. Frizzle a number of ways — from Netflix to the amazing books series to our monthly science club!
The Magic School Bus Science Kits Club is a 12- month science kit subscription based on the award-winning series, The Magic School Bus. If you haven’t heard about the series before, each of the stories center on the antics of a frizzy-red haired fictional elementary school teacher, Ms. Frizzle, and her class, who board a “magic school bus” to take them on field trips to impossible locations, like the solar system, clouds, the past, and inside the human body. This story-based learning took the science scene by storm in the 90’s.
But it’s the 2010s!!
The kit subscription takes it to the next level with HANDS ON learning that all ties into the stories! And although the Magic School Bus may be an old show, it’s still just as relevant and exciting for today’s kids.
This is a great choice for families with multiple children, kinesthetic, and visual learners – and just a fun, educational activity for a rainy day! The kits include experiments related to Volcanoes, Weather, Water, Fossils, Bacteria and Fungi, Star and Planets, and the weather, which, given recent events I want to brush up on, too.
One experiment I’ve been really excited to try is the Volcano Kit! The kit comes with a small volcanic rock, a pumice stone, sheets of paper, black paint, paint brush, a magnifying glass all to build a volcano. Check out the video below to see the fun experiment and explosive result (this one is from Educents so you don’t have to see my kitchen..)
And there are so many more experiments! Think of a sibling science club coming to life in your home – or friends bonding over making volcanoes explode, and learning all about how the human body works! Getting kids excited about STEM learning is exciting stuff.
