Fantastic 4 makes science fun for kids! #Fantastic4Science #FantasticInsiders @FHEInsiders @FoxHomeEnt #sponsored


Before they became Fantastic 4, our favorite superheroes, were super scientists!   Ignite a spark of imagination, experimentation, and discovery in your kids, and help them discover their passion for science. Getting kids involved in science at a young age, gets them excited about things they may of not learned about for a few years.  Even just getting the kids in the kitchen and teaching them about measuring and how mixing different things together to make something as simple as muffins, can ignite a passion in them.

The FANTASTIC FOUR make a triumphant return with MARVEL’s next generation of heroes — four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, their physical forms altered in shocking ways. Their lives changed forever, Reed Richards (“MR. FANTASTIC”), Sue Storm (“INVISIBLE WOMAN”), Johnny Storm (“THE HUMAN TORCH”) and Ben Grimm (“THE THING”) must harness their incredible new powers and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy, the infamous DR. DOOM.

This holiday season do some epic at-home science experiments, inspired by the team's super powers.


First up It is Clobberin' Time with The Thing's Clobberin' Candy aka Rock Candy.  Pick up a Rock Candy Crystal Growing Experiment Kit on Amazon for $26.11 & FREE Shipping on orders over $35 to get this experiment started.

The rock candy crystals grow molecule by molecule. When sugar and  water are heated together and then cooled, a supersaturated  solution is created. The solution contains more sugar than can stay  in liquid form. Sugar then comes out of the solution and attaches to  the string. Over time, the water evaporates. At each stage, the  solution continues to become more saturated, and  sugar  molecules  continue to collect around the string. All of the loose sugar  crystals have now realigned and attached to become one large crystal known to us as rock candy.


Make your rock candy plain or add food coloring for festive holiday rock candy! The waiting game!  It will take a few days for the crystals to form, so during this time have your little scientist document the changes and his/her observations!


Get your inner Mr. Fantastic on with Stretch Slime!  You will need a Scientific Explorer Slime Science Kit to get your goo on (on Amazon for $9.95 + $5.00 shipping).   Mix your own glowing slime with this classic experiment kit. Your child will love this gooey green slime and parents will have fun assisting them in making it as well! 

What's better than a handful of goopy, oozy slime? Slime that you make yourself!  Kids will learn how to properly mix and measure and then have hours of fun with it.   


The Human Torch has the ability to set a blaze and remain lit through internal combustion - just like a candle.  So why not make your own "combustible candles" with your kids!

Kids will have fun layering wax and creating their own designs.  With minimal mess the candle making  is simple and easy to use giving endless hours of fun!  First you place the wick tab and the wick in the bottom of you jar, while holding it still you slowly pour your wax into the jar.  Get creative and layer it, make designs, etc.     

These make the perfect gift!   Then once your recipient burns it , the wax crystals will slowly melt and your creation will take on a new light! Have your kids documents the changes from solid to liquid and gas!  It makes learning fun!


Fluorescent ink like the Invisible Woman is undetectable to the human eye unless you shine a UV black light on it!   So a perfect way to get in on the invisible action is to give your kids invisible ink pens! Invisible ink refers to any substance, that one can  write with that is invisible on application or disappears quickly, and can be subsequently restored by some means.  We received some super cool pens that are invisible on application.  Just look at how cool they look with the UV light shined on it:

These pens let you communicate secret messages to your friends. Simply write a message with the invisible ink pen, then light up your message with the mini UV light; to see what was written down.  Get your inner Sue Storm on with these fun pens!

So this holiday season, get your inner science geek on and have fun with your kids making science experiments and enjoy a great family film!
