10.30am: Make & Make Believe: Crazy Chemistry

The Maggie & Rose chemistry laboratory is open and today we will be carrying out some exciting experiments to see how different things react when we put them together. Making things ooze, fizz or change colour is a great way to excite little ones’ curiosity and introduce them to cause and effect, nurturing their mini scientific instincts!

Join us on YouTube at 10.30

What you'll need

Ooze experiment:

  • Bowl

  • Spoon or stick to mix

  • Water

  • Cornflour

  • *Optional food colouring

Fizz experiment:

  • Tray to catch spills (or you could do it in your sink!)

Afterwards, why not download our recipe card to cook up a savoury cake as green as the Emerald City, packed full of nutritious veggies! This is a great follow-up activity to do at home together - talk about each different ingredient as you go and give them a taste if you haven't before!
