Oil + Water Chemistry
What you get
Oil and water may not mix, but kids and chemistry definitely do! Set up your very own fab chemistry lab, and conduct a series of hands-on oil-and-water experiments. Add fizzy tablets to oil and dyed water to make an underwater “volcano,” and discover why gas bubbles float. Harness the properties of oil and water to create colorful, swirly art. Then explore the concept of density while building an adorable oil-and-water-powered ship-in-a-bottle. And more!
Kiwi Camp features five-days of FREE content, video and additional DIY activities to pair with this crate.

This was our favorite crate yet - there are so many different projects and experiments to explore! My son loved the fizzy tablets. He was excited to complete the art cards and ship-in-a-bottle to share what he learned with Dad and Grandma, so it was nice to have those as takeaways. So much better than any of the junky kits we have gotten as birthday party presents before. I would recommend this one to anyone who wants to give a nice educational gift that is also fun and cute ;)
My granddaughter and I loved doing this project together. Her favorite one was the ship in the bottle!
Sometimes a simple kit is all you need to get children of various ages engaged together. This kit had kids 8-12 engaged together playing and having fun. The 12 year old reverted to the days playing in the bath with larger plastic beakers and vials changing colors of water with soap and shampoo. Also garnered lots of questions about density and how liquids can have different textures and weight.
