Bubbles has been a big fan of, well, bubbles, for quite some time now.  Nearly every day she asks if we can go outside and blow bubbles.  Doesn’t matter if it’s raining, windy, 100 degrees, or snowing – she wants to be outside playing with bubbles.

We were recently given the opportunity to review a scientific experiments kit from The Young Scientists Club.  After taking a few minutes to visit their site, my choice for a kit was a no-brainer.  They have a line of Clifford the Big Red Dog Science Kits, and we love Clifford.  But more exciting was the fact that one of the kits was a Bubble Science kit!

Bubbles has really been in love with magnets for the last few months.  It started with me trying to find something for her to do while I worked in the kitchen; she loves to be my helper, but there are parts she obviously isn’t old enough to do.  So I pulled down all the “fun” magnets from the top of the fridge and had her rearrange them while I worked.

She liked it so much that I gave her a dry erase board with a bunch of magnets so she could play wherever she wanted.  We came up with a few different games and activities for the magnets, but the small board, we were a bit limited in all we could do.  I decided to look for a magnet set that would expand our play.  When I saw the MagneTalk Match-Up Adventures Kit I knew it was exactly what I had been looking for.
