This kit contains Two Science and Two Art & Craft learning activities for children aged 8 plus:

1.  CREATE YOUR OWN PRESSED FLOWER ART:  Remember those days when you collected flowers and beautiful leaves in your notebooks? Here is an opportunity to bring back those old memories and live it again through your children. Let them collect flowers and leaves from your backyard and preserve the beauty of nature in your own home. Press them and turn them to pieces of art. Includes instructions and materials for making trinket box, greeting cards and bookmarks.

Contents: Flower press cover and base (10cm x 10cm), corrugated cardboard, white blotting paper, plastic screws and wing-nuts, trinket boxes, cards, envelopes, bookmarks, brush, glue, ribbon, double-sided adhesive tapes and detailed instructions.

2.  BUILD YOUR OWN LIGHT KALEIDOSCOPE:  The best way to learn is to do it yourself, and that's why this Build Your Own Light Kaleidoscope kit is so fun and fascinating! It takes the intriguing mysteries of primary colours and breaks down the science into pieces little minds can grasp. The included instructions make assembly a breeze, and once assembled children can use the templates to create all manner of beautiful silhouettes and patterns. The patterns are both beautiful and scientific: they'll soon understand the important role of primary colours. Enjoy the Light within!

Contents: 1 x Base (11 cm diameter), 1 x Battery Compartment Cover, 1 x Base Template, 1 x Axis, 1 x Template Wheel, 3 x Screen Supports, 1 x Screen, 5 x Templates, 1 x Screw and Detailed Instructions.

3.  MAKE YOUR OWN ARCTIC EXPRESS TRAIN: All aboard! We’re ready to depart on a magical journey! Are you ready for a festive adventure? This set of wheels is ice-cool, snow wonder Santa likes to take the train sometimes! Powered by sparkling snow instead of steam, it’s got a delivery for the North Pole - but you need to make it first. Creative kids will thrive with the challenge of making up their own model using the pre-cut pieces then finishing their work with an array of dazzling stickers. Build, design, peel and stick!

Contents: 1 x Assorted Foam Train Templates and Self-adhesive Foam Decorations.

4.  DIG YOUR OWN SHARK TOOTH FOSSIL:  Sharks are Aussie favourites. They are always in news for some reason and even though they are scary, kids and adults love them. This kit builds upon that very excitement by allowing kids to dig out their own glow-in-dark shark tooth from a fossil replica. The tooth can then be worn as a necklace using the cord provided. Cool as it sounds, your children would also get an appreciation of how big Shark's teeth are. Great education with show-off fun. Includes two teeth!

Contents: 2 x Glow-in-dark Shark Teeth (buried in the plaster block), 1 x Specially designed digging tool, Length of Fabric Cord and Detailed Instructions

All together these four activities are perfectly balanced between Science, Art and Crafts. Designed by educationalists, the benefits of 'learning by doing' is hard to let go.
