Our Experience:

We received this video as a review item.  I am always excited to be able to have the kids see science experiments because we don’t always get to do them at home.  Yep, bad mom that I am, I sometimes let them slide when we don’t have enough time in our week to get all our school done!  Thankfully, MathandScience.com has come up with this great product to help me out!
I figured I would try to get the kids to watch it by offering them to get to stay up past their bedtime to watch a bit of it.  Ha!  This totally backfired on me because they wanted to watch more and more!  Then they came downstairs (at like 11 pm) to ask if they could get out the milk, food coloring, and dish detergent  to show me the coolest experiment they just learned.  I made them wait until morning, thinking that they might forget about it.  Ha, again.  1st thing in the morning they were pulling everything out to do this experiment.  Not only that, but they were telling me the reasons of why this experiment does what it does.  How cool is that?
Needless to say I am really impressed with this science experiment DVD!  My kids are excited about watching the experiments, they were able to get the supplies together by themselves and do it as well.  Woo hoo for me, and them!  Happy campers all around!
Here’s a list of what your kids could be learning and doing too:

What I liked:

  • My kids are eager to watch it, and do the experiments.
  • My kids could explain to me why the experiment did what it did!

What I didn’t like:

  • My kids wanted to stay up really late watching the experiments!  

To sum it up: If you are anything like me you may not get to all the science experiments you would like to in a school year.  This Amazing Science! DVD is a great way to have your kids learning and doing without a lot of work on your part!  They will be begging to do more science.  This would be great to use during the summer if you don’t have time during the year to do it.  However, if your kids are anything like mine they will be eager to watch this DVD and do the experiments during their free time!
