It's simple, inexpensive, and fun to whip up amazing science experiments like straw rockets, green slime, and paper bag volcanoes using everyday ingredients.

In this abridged, paperback edition of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids, Little Learning Labs: Kitchen Science for Kids offers 26 fun science activities for families to do together. The experiments can be used as individual projects, for parties, or as educational activities for groups (perfect for Girl Scout Brownies looking to earn their Home Scientist badges). Many of the experiments are both safe enough for children as young as toddlers and exciting for older kids—fun for the whole family!

The popular Little Learning Labs series (based on the larger format Lab for Kids series) features a growing list of books that share hands-on activities and projects on a wide host of topics, including art, astronomy, geology, math, and even bugs—all authored by established experts in their fields.

Geared toward being taught or guided by adults, they are enriching for a range of ages and skill levels. Gain firsthand knowledge on your favorite topic with Little Learning Labs.

Author Biography

Liz Lee Heinecke has loved science since she was old enough to inspect her first butterfly. After working in molecular biology research for 10 years and earning her master’s degree, she left the lab to kick off a new chapter in her life as a stay-at-home mom. Soon, she found herself sharing her love of science with her three kids as they grew, chronicling their science adventures on her KitchenPantryScientist website. Her desire to share her enthusiasm for science led to regular television appearances, an opportunity to serve as an Earth Ambassador for NASA, and the creation of an iPhone app. Her goal is to make it simple for parents to do science with kids of all ages, and for kids to experiment safely on their own. Liz graduated from Luther College and received her master’s degree in bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is the author of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids, Kitchen Science Lab for Kids: Edible Edition, Outdoor Science Lab for Kids, STEAM Lab for Kids, and Little Learning Labs: Kitchen Science for Kids. Her namesake series, The Kitchen Pantry Scientist, pairs illustrated biographies with engaging hands-on activities inspired by their work. Current titles in that series include: Chemistry for Kids. Biology for Kids, and Physics for Kids.
