am cross I can't buy Nina and the neurons on DVD, but I do have some Usborne cards with experiments on (it is called 50 science things to make and do)...but are there any other good books with experiments in with simple things I can buy/have round the house.

My books are all packed away at the moment as we are having building work but I have a book about how to host a science birthday party with some good ideas in it. I bought it on Amazon so try doing a search.

Exploratopia is fun although rather expensive.

For what age Cazzybabs? I have just got Crisp Packet fireworks for my lot to use in the summer holidays. They are 12, 9 and 7 and this looks perfect.

DD has a Horrible Science book called Explosive Experiments out of the library atm - its a bit loud in the way that those horrible whatever books are, but it does have some good experiments in it, and your 8 yo might like the book anyway.
