Galt Disgusting Science Review and Giveaway!

Galt Disgusting Science Review and giveaway

We know lots of you are loving trying out a little bit of science at home but sometimes getting all the bits and pieces you need together can be a bit tricky at times so sometimes the science kits can make life a little simpler. So I was very exited when Galt Toys let me review their Disgusting Science Kit.

Disgusting Science is a science kit that focuses on Biology and the human body. It includes experiments, such as growing your own germs,making snot and replicating the intestine.

The kit comes complete with all that is need including petri dishes, gelatine, yeast, sugar, food dyes, and cotton buds and a brilliant instruction booklet laid out with all the methods!

We decided to make some germs first. This involved making up the jelly bottom of the petri dishes and then preparing our germs. We collected air born germs, between our toes (yuck sock fluff!) door handle and nose.

You tape all the petri dishes up and let them grow. Then go back to inspect using the magnifying glass

And up close!

You throw the petri dishes away sealed once finished with in a sealed bag into the rubbish bin. NEVER open the petri dishes and always wash your hands after use.

Then we made some snot which added to Noah’s amusement when Mummy pretended to sneeze! He took the photo and was very proud!

Mummy has the sneezes!

Oh Mummy your Gross!

This kit is fabulous and such great fun stretching the minds of youngster. Obviously with the germs growing, Noah only really understood that if you don’t wash your hands that is what can grow and make you poorly but this can be extended for older children and obviously they can do more themselves supervised as some parts do involve a stove.

The kit is aimed for children over 8 years old and for use under adult supervision only. This is mainly because of the inflated balloons and some of the smaller parts that can be a choking hazard. However personally I felt with Noah who is three, was safe to observe and ask questions whilst Mummy prepared, so my advice would be keeping the small parts out of reach and it being observation only for younger children but just so you know the warning is there and clearly stated.

We had such great fun with this kit and for only £10.99 I think it is brilliant value and a fabulous Christmas present.
