In this book, you'll find 44 simple science activities for very young children paired with timeless stories of the Christian faith. The activities require nothing more than household items and a few minutes of your time. Each lesson includes a materials list, directions and an explanation of the science. No science background needed!
Each activity page contains a Bible story told briefly and in simple language, and an accompanying lesson that will help children apply biblical truths to their lives, even at their young age. The science actity includes a materials list and step-by-step directions, along with an explanation of the science concept behind the activity.
Children of this age can't concentrate for very long, so in choosing the activities for this book, I looked for ones that could be accomplished in 10 to 15 minutes. Even so, the activities are a lot of fun: children can make their own butter, a magnifying glass, a kazoo, and a lava lamp, for example. Even your older children will enjoy these activities.
Each activity can be completed in just a few simple steps, and all materials can be safely used by children with adult supervision. And, you'll find everything you need around your house: water, spoons, coins, marbles, soda bottles, food coloring, balloons. No trips to a science supply store!
