Our "Here Comes the Sun" box included 3 main experiments - Solar Balloon, Solar Oven, and Conductivity Test. While the boys were pumped to get going with the experiments, I was not. After reading the instructions and understanding not only the amount of work but patience each of these was going to take, I knew the boys would be losing interest about half way through.
While I thought the idea of making the solar balloon would be cool, I was frustrated that we thought we could start on another one while we waited for the sun to blow the balloon up itself. Unfortunately you had to do the solar balloon, then destroy it to make the solar oven! What if we had started with the solar oven first?
I thought the solar oven was creative way to show the boys how to make one, how it works, and how to recycle broken crayons using it! The conductivity test was a neat one for them to see as well. Even though this is designed for 8+, so a little ahead of my boys, I still thought the idea behind it was a good one as well as very much interested each of them. I just think the items could have been designed a little easier to create and be separate for each.
