From the creators of Scary Science, another fascinatingly fun book of experiments - this time with a focus on winter!
Science is fun all year round - and here's a book to prove it! This winter, kids, their parents and their teachers will be inspired to try these simple experiments inside, inspired by the freezing weather outside.
Kids can learn to make their own ice cream, create an indoor avalanche and pick up an ice cube with just a piece of string. Also included are fun facts about icebergs, frost, "orange" snow and lots more cool winter science!
