On the 5th November 1605 Guy Fawkes was caught in the cellars of the Houses of Parliament with several barrels of gunpowder with the intention to blow up the king and his parliaments. Guy Fawkes was subsequently tried as a traitor with his co-conspirators for plotting against the government and was hung, drawn and quartered.
Today, the failure of their plot and the preservation of the King’s life are celebrated with spectacular fireworks displays and the burning of Guy Fawkes effigies on bonfires. For all naughty little ones who like a bit of ‘BOOM’ our Explosive Experiments kit is just for you and would make Guy Fawkes proud, containing extremely explosive stuff! Your children will be able to create and launch a super cool rocket, watch a volcano erupt, make fizzy bombs, a lava lamp and some seriously slimy snot….this all in one super science kit is suitable for children aged 10+ years.
