The ultimate balloon book : 46 projects to blow up, bend & twist by Shar Levine( Book )

Turn any time into party time with balloon creations that are more fun, and easier to make, than you'll find in any other book! Simple twist-and-turn techniques show how to loop and tie balloons together to create colorful creatures, large and small, make balloon costumes and hats, and transform any space indoors or out into a magic kingdom. Brilliant color photos show finished projects and close-ups of each step. For starters, turn single balloon into flowers or animals, hats or jewelry. Then try your hand at a stegosaurus, butterfly, dragon, or school of fish. Move on to eye-popping airplanes and space ships, a Halloween spider and web, your choice of a birthday centerpiece, braids and bracelets, and costumes for pirates, angels, fairies, and robots. There's even a section on building your own funhouse or festooning your entryway. Before you know it, you can host your own version of a Macy's Parade!

Explores the properties of light and color by means of experiments and analysis of various optical instruments including periscopes, and telescopes. What could be more important than light? It makes plants grow; gives us food; lets us see bright, beautiful colors; and provides warmth. But to grasp the nature of light--and vision--we must understand optics. These delightful hands-on experiments vividly demonstrate the workings of absorption, reflection, refraction, and more. Toast marshmallows by the sun's intense heat. Create a "ray box," and view the entire spectrum through a water prism, and a rainbow in soap bubbles. Or try filters to really see the world through rose-colored glasses! Along with a materials list, the book includes safety instructions, explanations of the scientific principles underlying each experiment, a note on color blindness, and a glossary
