Letterbox Lab – British Science Week

Letterbox Lab

Letterbox Lab for British Science Week. We’re huge Science buffs and we also enjoy passing on our knowledge and love of all things science to our children. My son Connor has always been fascinated with space, planets and maths from a very young age has been able to recite all the planets in order of distance from the sun. He can even tell you all about the dwarf planets and the different atmospheres. We were super excited to celebrate “British Science week” and we have been enjoying some super fun experiments too! take a look….

First, we opened up our Letterbox Lab kit and we were super surprised to see such a great selection of different experiments. We started off with experiment 1: Invisible inks. The boys were so interested in finding the hidden colours in the inks on the chromatography paper and learning that inks are made up of different colours, not just the one we see. We also looked at how we could remove all the colouring from the skittles too.

Experiment 2: Rainbow Glasses. The boys couldn’t wait to try on these super cool glasses that turn every light into a rainbow. They had so much fun running around the house and garden saying how strange everything looks. We saved the other experiments for later in the week. The boys give Letterbox Labs 10/10. Letterbox Labs offer monthly boxes for ages 6-12 HERE.


We love trying out new kid’s boxes! It’s super fun. If you’re looking for a special box for your little one, check out more kid’s boxes HERE
