Using the acid in vinegar to dissolve eggshells, baking soda to make The Best Fizzy Lemonade or boiling water to make Ice Cubes in a Flash. Each project helps you understand the how and why of the world around you. With 60 unique scientific projects, Snackable Science Experiments will entertain and amaze for hours on end!
This September Piglet is making the move from her day nursery setting to preschool within the local school. Whilst this has been delayed (by nine months) due to the school’s policies, she is finally starting her educational journey.

Secondly, the skill level – I’m not exactly known for being creative so I get put off before I’ve even started.
Whilst we can hope that others around us will add to our happiness it is something that starts within. Something that two amazing bloggers Penny Alexander and Becky Goddard-Hill (who I have the great privilege to say I know) have recently written an amazing book for tweens (7-11 year olds) – Create Your Own Happy. Their book showcases ways in which children (and adults alike) can create their own happiness.
