Discovering Maker March with DK Canada Books
With this extended March Break, we are ever so grateful for Discovering maker March with DK Canada Books. Maker March came just at the right time with the recent COVID-19 situation and my family and I are grateful for all the awesome crafts, science experiments, and more that we have been entertained by with the three books we received recently. It was like Christmas when these awesome books came to our doorstep!
Below are the three DK Canada books we were given to review:
Spectacular Science Fun with Science is Magic
My eldest loved learning about how infrared works with one of the super cool science experiments called “Invisible light beams” Lots of the experiments in this book work with things you already have in the house which is perfect. It’s nice to work on these experiments and break up our ‘screen time’ since the kiddos are stuck at home.
The pepper repelling finger trick is ever so timely as it’s been exploding on the internet with the recent push for people to wash their hands! It’s a great way to explain to your little ones how washing your hands combats germs as the ‘pepper’ is the harmful bacteria that pushes away from you clean hands.
Crafts Galore with Junior Maker
As soon as we can get our hands on some craft material the boys are dying to make the bottle jetpack. They are super fascinated with space these days so becoming astronauts with jetpacks is right up their alley.
This book is super cool because it has five different themes with some learning then the associated crafts. The five themes are space, nature, history, animals and science. A great way to make learning fun, especially when school is currently out.
While we may not have the current craft supplies needed for the jet packs, we DID have the supplies for Marshmallow constellations which were fun to create then even better to eat when we were done!
Build, Invent, Create and Discover with Maker Lab
This beautiful book is divided into 4 sections – Food for Thought, Around the home, Water World and The Great Outdoors.
Under Food for thought, did you know you can make a battery using lemons?! All you need is copper wire, screws, lemons and coins and you can make an electric current?
The experiments and crafts in this book require a bit more material than your average items lying around the house so in this time of social distancing we have picked our top three to try as soon as things settle. The lemon battery of course. Followed by a recipe to make your own bath fizzies and finally an Erupting Volcano from paper mache…..among many others in this awesome book.
All three of these books would make excellent gifts for birthdays or to help pass the time during social isolation!
