The kitchen is every child’s first science lab. Whether they’re cooking or crafting, cleaning up or making a mess, it’s ground zero for experimentation of all sorts. And it’s a terrific way to introduce kids to scientific concepts that will continue to crop up throughout their schooling.

Recycled Science offers all sorts of fun, low-tech ways to engage kids with homemade projects. A marshmallow shooter, a cloud in a bottle, a crystal snowflake, and a pinhole camera are just four of the genuinely neat things you can make with them or guide them through constructing themselves.

And unlike a LOT of DIY kids’ science books that claim they’re easy (only to involve random objects or ingredients that are rarely, if ever, found around the house), this book is truly simple, home science. Toilet paper tubes, rubber bands, duct tape, clothespins…virtually everything involved with these projects can be scrounged up with ease. (The only exception? The flashlight project near the end of the book.)

Looking for a rainy day activity or something to spark interest in STEM learning? Recycled Science is a great place to start. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a stomp rocket to build.
