Crafty Science: More than 20 Sensational STEAM Projects to Create at Home (Hardcover)
This hands-on crafty science book introduces inquisitive children to the wonders of science through kids craft projects with everyday objects.
Award-winning author Jane Bull combines art, craft, and cooking activities with gentle, scientific learning, showing children that science, technology, engineering, art, and math are all around us - and in everything we make and do!
Crafty Science contains over 20 fun-filled craft activities for kids, each accompanied by a "What's the science?" section explaining how it works. Children will learn how to make a toy raft and discover what makes their boat float. They'll design, color, and watch a paper butterfly balance on the tip of a pencil. Or even create a cool ice sculpture and learn about the changing states of solids and liquids.
With this educational book, difficult concepts like buoyancy, gravity, and aerodynamics become meaningful and accessible to young children through play. They will discover the world around them as they have never seen it before! Little crafters will become little scientists as they explore, experiment, make, and create their way through every STEAM project.
A super fun kids' book that can fill up many weekends with your children. It offers activities that are not just typically “science”, but include variety like baking, growing, and art projects. All use scientific principles to allow children to develop observational science.
Depending on your child's age, a fair amount of supervision may be necessary, but these projects are so charming that we're sure adults will have a good time with them too!
