Some of my favourite Science Sparks experiments are in this collection of Fairy Tale science investigations, including growing a bean for Jack and building a gingerbread house.
I also have themed science investigation ideas for all times of the year including an egg filled collection of Easter science experiments, winter science investigations, summer science and so much more, so do take a look around.
