Science Fun With Beaker Creatures Collectables

Science Fun With Beaker Creatures Collectables

Some of you know that we home educate our boys. It was a decision that wasn’t made lightly but probably one of the best decisions we could have ever made. We still have our learning schedules as do schools but ours is so much more relaxed. Learning for my boys rounded up in three words would be – freedom, fun and flexibility. We don’t have to sit in a classroom to learn. Outdoors is one of our best resources. We do plenty of practical work and learn through play, so it’s no surprise that we use Learning Resources a lot!

Here is a little snippet to give you a general idea of the range before we start.


The beaker creatures are awesome little collectables and if you read our blog regularly then you will know my eldest loves kids collectables. The creatures come in their own reactor pod. Use the Liquid Reactor Super Lab to dissolve the reactor pod and discover which beaker creature is hiding inside by using the classifications cards.

Start by filling the syringes with water pop them back into the lab and push them down to release water into the reactor chamber. The reactor pod fizzes away like a bath bomb until it reveals a figure.

Jayden then removed the figure using his funky green tongs. We did get a little spillage but that was only because the drip tray mysteriously disappeared. What’s a bit of mess when you have loads of fun to compensate for it.

You can examine the beaker creatures in the Magnification Chamber. There are 35 beaker creatures to collect who are from 5 different planets – Astrolytes, Oceanites, Frostonians, Buglettes and Minisaurs.  There is also 5 24-carat (not real gold) limited edition creatures. Jayden loves the look of those but unfortunately didn’t get any in his batch so I’ve got a feeling we will be buying more very soon!

You can also do lots of fun science experiments some of which are listed in the guide provided. We used the tube in the magnification chamber to do a colour experiment using vegetable oil, water and food colouring. You could do fake volcano’s and many more fun experiments to keep the kids entertained.

The Beaker Creatures get a big thumbs up from us and I am sure other budding little scientists will love them too!

    My eldest would adore these, learning through play is always the best way in my eyes. I’d never seen these before but one for Christmas maybe now!
