My six-year-old grandson loved this kit! We had a lot of fun with the experiments and the booklet was excellent. We did a little research on the recent oil spill in California so it was good timing. With just a few modifications I was able to use it with the three-year-old that I nanny. He loved it as well. This is a kit we’re going to use a lot in the future.
