The Magic School Bus Weather Lab from Young Scientists Club {review & giveway}

Sponsored post basic disclosure
Anyone who knows my daughter knows that science is a verb in our house. A few months ago, my daughter decided that she definitely wanted to be a scientist when she grew up…. or a ballerina. We ran with the scientist thing.

I never turn down an opportunity to spark my kids’ love of learning, and science with kids can be a fascinating thing that can carry them all through school. So, now we “science” all sorts of stuff each day, anything from basic weather phenomenon, things we find in nature, or concepts that can be hard to explain to kids without hands-on experiments.

Thank goodness there are kits designed specifically for teaching kids early science lessons, because I would be lost on how to start teaching science otherwise. I recently found the Magic School Bus line of science kits from Young Scientists Club and it was as if I had found the coolest toys on earth, according to my daughter.

I loved the books growing up, and we just found the Magic School Bus show after searching for science shows for kids, so as soon as I saw that there were Magic School Bus kits specifically for doing science at home, I was sold. And, then when I saw this kit, I fell in love:

Magic School Bus Weather Lab

Magic School Bus Weather Lab
Ms. Frizzle and her students help Young Scientists learn about the weather by spinning a pinwheel, making a tornado in a bottle, swirling a paper snake, recreating the water cycle, creating a rain cloud, using a sun dial, constructing a barometer, catching a rainbow, and learning about the greenhouse effect. With a weather chart is for tracking weather with colorful stickers, 28 colorful experiment cards, weather station, weather chart, stickers, and data notebook to record observations, your child will have everything they need to become a little meterologist.

With the changing of the seasons and the start of school, the weather lab has been perfect for my little scientists. They could tell you what direction the wind is blowing at any time, how much rain we’ve had this week {hint: it’s a lot}, and are now working on creating their own rain cloud. Even though they are mostly just having fun and playing, we’re still working on the basics of science and I love that they are soaking it all up and learning at the same time.

After a few weeks of exploring the Magic School Bus Weather Lab, I am more impressed with it each time we “science” together. With both basic and advanced experiments and almost everything you need included in the kit, it is perfect for my little budding meteorologists.

Growing up, I remember being a bit intimidated by science as I would hear my older siblings struggle in physics and chemistry. But, had I already developed a love of science at a young age, I think I would have realized that even complex ideas can be broken down into easier concepts that all build upon each other and then would have felt more confident.

Who knows, I might have been some brilliant scientist, saving the world and collecting accolades had I viewed science as a fun adventure instead of something many struggled with. I guess I will have to pin my hopes on my own children and hope this love of science that we are fostering will take them amazing places.
