mad scientist stage


my little girl is going through her "mad scientist" stage at the moment ...


so for all you out there who are going through the same stage, maybe you could use this
chemistry crayon set by QueInteresante

the labels list the colour name plus the chemicals that make those colours ... brilliant,
so instead of thinking 'i want green' they will think 'i want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame'
- well maybe not, but you can always pretend you have a little einstein
