Oil + Water Chemistry
What you get
Oil and water may not mix, but kids and chemistry definitely do! Set up your very own fab chemistry lab, and conduct a series of hands-on oil-and-water experiments. Add fizzy tablets to oil and dyed water to make an underwater “volcano,” and discover why gas bubbles float. Harness the properties of oil and water to create colorful, swirly art. Then explore the concept of density while building an adorable oil-and-water-powered ship-in-a-bottle. And more!
Extend the fun! Dive deeper into the world of Kitchen Chemistry with FREE video and printable activities designed to pair with this crate. Learn more here.

Behind the design
“This crate is all about experimentation — with oil and water! Discover the molecular science behind oil with fun experiments like an underwater volcano and fireworks. Plus, turn science into art creating a one-of-a-kind postcard and a boat in a bottle. ”- The KiwiCo Product Design team
By the numbers

Probably one of the best boxes yet. The instruction book was very thick and had A LOT of experiments and plenty of ingredients to do all of them. The only thing you need to add is water. Big hit
Our kids enjoyed this kit very much. I actually got a second kit for my nephew. I did feel like this kit was best done all at once and when you had an entire day to spend completing it. Good on a rainy day
2 hours of learning and fun for both my kids.
