We received a Wild Science Lip Balm kit to review recently - perfect for our girlie 8 year old.
In the box was all the necessary equipment to make the lip balm and a good instruction sheet. Natural waxes and oils are included, along with colours, fragrances and flavours to make a variety of fruity and shimmery lip balms. There's also a very cute storage pot for the lip balm once made.
The instructions were very precise, but did involve some adult help (thanks patient Nana!) and the use of a microwave, so this is not a kit to leave the children alone with.
Tamsin wanted to try it out with a friend who had come to play, but to be honest it's more of a set for one individual. They managed the sharing and turn-taking very well though, so it did all work out OK! Here's some of the finished product:
There's some other great picks in this range of make-your-own science products, like bath bomb, rockets and perfume. Next on our list is definitely the Nail kit though!
At £12.99 suggested retail these are a great gift for tweenagers (suitable from age 8 up) and you can find more details here: www.interplayuk.com
