The big red Christmas envelope has arrived!

“I decided to get Oliver a subscription to @whizzpopbangmag for Christmas. It arrived today packed in this lovely festive red envelope, it was addressed to him and even had a little note saying ‚ÄėOpen on Christmas Day!‚Äô. Oliver is really excited to find out what it is. He loved the fact it was addressed to him personally. I am really excited for him to open it on Christmas Day and when he realises next here will be an issue being delivered EVERY MONTH ‚ÄĘ I am hoping this will inspire us to spend some time together reading and doing science stuff. I have always wanted to get magazine subscriptions for Christmas and I am really glad I have this year. I‚Äôve also got the younger boys one too ‚ÄĘ Have you ever got a subscription for someone? Is it something you would consider? Also, this is cheaper (even with delivery) than buying the magazines from the local shop and the bonus is no plastic tat stuck on the front.”¬†Cherie Lewis-Quinn

September issue: Super seeds

In this issue we go mad for conkers and pine cones with fun hands-on science activities to learn all about how seeds spread.¬†Everyone wants a bit of distance¬†from their parents from time¬†to time, but since seeds can‚Äôt¬†move, they instead rely on cunning¬†techniques to find their own patch¬†of ground. Imagine being fired away¬†from your parent in a green slimy¬†liquid! Yes, this issue we‚Äôre looking¬†at seed dispersal ‚Äď you can try¬†modelling dandelion seeds, making¬†your own pinecone bird feeders and¬†experimenting with a sycamore seed¬†heli-spinner. Find out about the history of the invention of Velcro, which was inspired by nature’s own burs and take a peek inside a top-secret seed bank buried deep inside an arctic mountain. Happy experimenting kids!
