Gross science - Zombie hand kit by John Adams * test & Review *

My son Bodhi LOVES anything a little gross and grim, He also loves science at very nearly 7 years old this is a passion i really want to encourage, When given the chance to test out a kit from John Adam's gross science range i knew that i had to pick the zombie hand kit, i kept it for doing over the October half term and the whole family got involved with the project.

The only down side of the kit is i didn't know until Bodhi was reading the instructions that one we needed lip balm ( most home would have this tho ) and also the hand needs to be placed in the freezer over night ! I did have to do a super quick freezer rearrange so we could fit it in. This really wasn't an issue tho and it made the project last longer and Bodhi really looked forward to carrying on with the kit the next day. 

All of the items are clearly labelled and the instructions are clears and simple to follow , the kit is aimed at ages 7 plus i definitely think this is the right age range group for these kits, Bodhi clipped all of the hand bones together and we added the gel to the hand mould and into the freezer for its over night stay! 

Fast forward to the next evening and this was the part Bodhi had been looking forward too the most, Making the green zombie skin! Again he could read the step by step instructions and told me and dad what we needed to do next to help him out.

The template within the instructions was really handy ( get it handy! ) and let Bodhi do the part he really wanted to do without any grown up help, He did need some help in placing the green zombie skin onto the zombie hand! He zombie hand once out of the freezer starts to defrost pretty fast so you can't hang around with it ! 

John Adams is a house hold known brand and one i would would by again and again ! these would make perfect gifts ideas for harder to by for children and i know that Bodhi will be adding a few more Gross Science kits onto his Christmas list. you can check out the rest of the range on the John Adams website
