Colorful Chemistry

  1. Grades Pre-K
  2. Grades K-2
  3. Grades 3-5


Add a little color — and a whole lot of science — to your day! Learn about the scientific method before setting up your own chemistry lab and get ready to experiment. Mix up a bubbly chemical reaction, combine colors and watch them swirl together, and even use household ingredients to explore more reactions!

Why it’s awesome

  1. Fizzy fun

    Plenty to experiment with again and again (and again).

  2. Experiment station

    Fizzy reactions stay inside the mixing tray.

  3. Creative cards

    Color-mixing designs turn into art to gift and display.

    We had so much fun with this kit! My daughter absolutely loved it. I love that this had two whole sets of colors/powders, so we got two full sessions of fun out of this one kit.



    My son absolutely loved it. He enjoyed seeing all the fizzing.

    Love the experiments. Appreciate that box has enough product to reuse for a 2nd time



    My son had fun playing with this set. I wish it came with more color packs though, as he didn’t have enough left for the final activity



    Directions were clear and the kit was packaged well. My six year old was able to set the lab up easily and run the experiments. Color mixing and bubbling activities went off without a hitch, while the art activity resulted in a grainy, highly textured canvas that took forever to dry. Providing more details on how much mixture to include might mitigate the issue.



    My son loved being a little scientist. He enjoyed scooping the ingredients and using all the tools. He lit up inmediately and was so enthralled by the activity. We went a little overboard color mixing that we didn't get to complete the second half of the activity.
