Explore Seeds
Like all fruits, cherries come from plant and contain seeds or pits. Seeds can be different sizes, shapes, and colors. The science activities in this kit allow you to explore how some seeds are the same or different. Predict the number and size of seeds in a variety of fruit, where the seeds are located, and more!

Hide and Seek
Many things are now what they seem to be. Colors of inks are like that. The activities in this kit will help you discover some things about the colors of common ink. During the activities, you will observe how colors move and separate on paper, try different liquids to separate colors in ink, and more.

Do you like ice cream? Do you know how ice cream is made?

Explore Popcorn
Popcorn kernels are the seeds of corn plants. In The Popcorn Book, twin brothers pop popcorn and observe how it changes. Moisture in the popcorn kernels helps it to pop. What happens if you try to pop dried kernels? Found out this answer and more by doing the science activities.

Air
Air is invisible and you seldom feel it, except in a strong wind. But air is all around you. This kit will give you a change to have some fun with science activities that involve air. You will even make a "Wonderwhirler"!

Explore Basic Tastes
Small bumps called taste buds on our tongues help us identify four basic tastes: sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. Different areas of the tongue are more sensitive to one basic taste than to the others. Your children will learn the areas of their tongues that are sensitive to each taste.
