Little H loves science – apparently, she wants to be a scientist when she grows up – so we were excited to review the fab Whizz Pop Bang kids’ science magazine.
Whizz Pop Bang is an award-winning children’s science magazine making science fun and engaging for 6-11 year old’s. Each magazine is packed full of hands-on experiments, fascinating facts, science news and discoveries, as well as interviews with real scientists.
The issue we had was called “Wonderful Weather” which was great as Little H had been learning about the weather at school at the end of last term.
I’ve been interested in finding a magazine for Little H for a while, as the ones based on tv shows and full of plastic tat are just the biggest waste of money and they never get read.
As soon as Whizz Pop Bang came through the post, Little H sat on the sofa and started reading.
The magazine starts off with amazing news and facts. Little H loved these and really enjoyed reading out the facts to me.
As well as lots of cool and informative facts there are also lots of fun science projects. You can make a hovercraft, bottle blowers and a cloud in a bottle.
There are also word searches, a true or false quiz, colouring, spot the difference and some jokes which were very popular in our house!
If you have a wannabe astronomer then this issue had some great stargazing tips and information. And for the techy kids, there’s an interview with a robotics scientist.
I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather Little H be reading about these people than celebrities or YouTubers!
The Wonderful Weather section was fab and would have come in very useful to help with homework when Little H was in Year 1 last year. With a few issues of these magazines, you could definitely have the information you need to help with lots of school projects.
Whizz Pop Bang is really colourful and the pages are laid out so that it’s all easy to follow. Little H found it really interesting and it kept her engaged for ages. I liked it because it’s nice to see her reading something educational for a change!
If your kids love science too you can subscribe to Whizz Pop Bang on their website. You could also ask for a magazine subscription for Christmas, it’s just £34.99 per year.
