Question: What do you get when you cross a 6-11 year old child with an “awesomely amazing science” magazine for kids?

Answer: Learning galore in an interactive environment.  Which means happy children and parents too! 🙂

When our little girl (aged 6) showed an interest in science, we decided to try Whizz Pop Bang science magazine.  We had seen it advertised on social media and knew that she would love to get something just for her, addressed to her, through the letter box.

We felt that she would likely learn (without realising) and it would encourage her away from a screen.

It sounded like a win-win to us.

And it was.

We were very impressed with Whizz Pop Bang.

Whizz Pop Bang is aimed at 6-11 year olds (and appeals to older readers too!).  The first issue that she got was about volcanoes.  This really appealed to me in all honesty!  They’ve always fascinated me and one of my favourite subjects at school was geography.  By reading this issue with our little girl, I refreshed my memory and learnt new volcano facts too!

In fact, I looked forward to reading the magazine on my own terms after her bedtime!

 Our little girl is rapidly approaching 7 and some of the terminology needed explaining but she did really well with her phonics sounding out and blending and needed little help with the bigger words.  In my view, the longer words are a bonus because our children can never read too much and it has helped to expand her vocabulary as well as learn facts about science.

Another thing that I loved about the magazine is that it encouraged questions too.  In my view, our children can never ask too many questions (okay, maybe except at bedtime!..)  We tell our little girl to always ask questions.

I’m not entirely sure how the creaters and designers have done it, but they have managed to create a magazine that’s fun, factual and age-appropriate to it’s target market.  Getting the balance right between keeping the age range of 6-11 year olds engrossed is tricky but they’ve done it.

Maybe it’s the regular sections the magazine has:

Puzzles

Competitions

Interviews with experts relevant to the particular issue

Activities (we were inspired to create an insect hotel!)

‘Ask’ Y – where robot Y answers childrens’ questions (our little girl has thought of lots already!)

Quiz (with answers on a separate page!)

When the Minibeasts issue came through our door, our little girl was at school but at home-time, the TV didn’t get a look in!  As soon as she saw that she had a new issue of Whizz Pop Bang to read, she wanted to get stuck in!

We really enjoyed the pepper experiment and she couldn’t wait to tell daddy all about it 🙂

The magazine is a very welcome addition to our household and there are plenty of experiments to spread out over the month…. to keep you going until the next issue!  As the website says, the magazine contains:

✓  Expert science writers

✓  Engaging layout and illustrations

✓  Gender-neutral content

  1. I really like the sounds of these Whizz Pop Bang magazines and I just know they’ll be a hit in our household as my girls love to read! I also like that they are so vibrant and eye catching too. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.xx

  2. This sounds soooo cool! My grandmother surprised us with a magazine subscription for our 1-year-old, and I really really love things like this. As you pointed out, it gets us away from screens, and I think that’s really important. I used to LOVE science as a kid, and all the little experiments look like sooo much fun. I can really see how it could take some time to get through the magazine. Definitely something I will keep in mind for the future! Thanks for sharing <3 #KCACOLS

  3. My son loves anything to do with science, he likes doing experiments and getting messy. He also loves finding out about space and was really interested in Tim Peake.

  4. My grandson loves anything which means experiments- at 8 years old he has a thirst for scientific knowledge and discovery.

  5. My little girl loves everything about Science! She is fascinated by the world around her and questions us constantly! She loves learning all about biology, particularly animals, and is fascinated with space and astronauts. She loves experimenting with chemistry kits she was bought for Christmas and has her own little microscope and telescope.
