Each sets starts with key words and definitions for each topic and are a mixture of typed and handwritten notes. We’re based in

Did you know this week is and it aims to help improve adults and children to learn digital skills!

Coding creates a set of instructions for computers to follow. These instructions determine what actions a computer can and cannot take. Coding allows programmers to build programs, such as websites and apps. Computer programmers can also tell computers how to process data in better, faster ways.

Now we may not be able to tell computers exactly what to do but with our coding creations you can give your little ones an introduction to five-bit binary code to make keyrings or bracelets!

For those of you who don’t know me, Hi! I’m Zoe and welcome to my corner of the internet! Wife, mummy of 2, chemistry teacher, tea lover, true crime fanatic, Harry Potter geek, lego enthusiast, gin drinker and wannabe Disney princess 👑

I’m here to help ignite curiosity and creativity with fun and affordable science experiment kits and help take away exam stress with GCSE and A-Level revision cards.

I’ve got a few things I’m working on (aka trying to get perfected 😂), but let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see from me!



So the first week of school has been and gone. First day photos have been taken, new timetables given out, new teachers, new lessons and a year full of opportunities ahead.

Why not get ahead of the game with our revision notes. Clear, concise and they fit in your pocket (or you can get our download versions for your phone or tablet!). It’s never too early to get started!

Space Romper paired with planets flashcards…never will I miss a product placement or the chance to show Nola off 🫶🏻😂


Can you find…….our Summer 🤣🤣

The weather is still looking a bit dodgy this week 🙄 but our science scavenger hunts can be used around the house as well as outdoors if we’re lucky enough to ever see the Sun!


So I did a thing ✌🏼🎉

I’ve been shortlisted in the Wales STEM Awards 2023!

The Wales STEM Awards is back for the third time to shine a spotlight on the organisations and individuals raising the profile of STEM in Wales.
The awards will once again celebrate those leading the sector in Wales, including those creating an impact on the Welsh economy, those addressing the STEM diversity gap and skills shortage, and those inspiring and raising aspirations of the next generation.

I’ve been shortlisted in the STEM Start-up of the Year awards which aims to celebrate and support Wales’ newest STEM businesses.

Safe to say I’ll be having a gin to celebrate tonight 🥂 and I’ll worry about my interview and presentation tomorrow 😂


Say hello to your Summer Holidays Saviour! ☀️

Our deluxe potions boxes are here to help you over the summer holidays when you hear ‘I’m boreddddddd’

7 activities that can be pulled out at the drop of a hat with everything you need inside the box (minus a drop of water and some washing up liquid!) All you need to do is decide which one you want to do first!

We only have 9 of these available. They’re cheaper than buying all of our kits individually and they’re available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1506867282/deluxe-potions-box-science-experiments


💐 The bigger the better?

That’s up to you to decide! Due to my recent baby brain blunder you now have the choice of an A5 or A6 method card with our chromatography flower kits. The A5 ones will come in a larger box that still fits through your letterbox but everything else in the box is the same no matter what size you choose - all you just need to do is pick a size when ordering!


Did you know we offer party packs? 🎁🎈

Five individual experiment kits for the price of 4! You can have all the same or mix and match!

Head to our stories to see a behind the scenes of making 30 chromatography flowers kits whilst looking after a 9 week old 🤪


Somehow this little squish is almost two months old and I’m not quite sure where the time has gone 🙈 we’re still here, still posting out orders, still covered in baby sick and still attempting to find time to finish the planets flashcards 🤪


Reckon your teenager needs a final push for their Year 11 Chemistry exam next week?

This is where the Big Sheet steps in!

This download covers the key points needed for the WJEC Chemistry exam and it’s only two pages long! It includes notes and key diagrams and they can have it on their phone so no excuses not to look at it 😂

💻We’ve gone digital! 💻

Don’t panic, not completely digital but our revision cards are now available to purchase on Etsy as downloads as well as physical copies!

After some reflection, we’ve realised that not everyone likes having paper copies of resources and lots of students these days are taking notes and revising digitally so you’ve now got the option!

Exam season is in full swing and now there’s no need to wait for the postman, you get the revision cards instantly as a pdf!

Head to our stories for links to each set we’ve got available!



The start of May can only mean one thing for students…exam season is here 🤓📝

By my calculations we’ve got Year 13 practical exams, Year 12 AS exams and Year 11 GCSE exams. Hopefully (🤞🏼) revision is in full swing but our revision cards can help take the stress out of revision. Clear, concise and A5 in size so they fit in your pocket!


Long time no post 👀

Somehow it’s February and we haven’t posted at all this year 🙈 we’re still here though! Still sending out your orders and working on new ideas, but we’re just in the middle of reorganising the house and about to start a renovation ready with the hope it’s all done in time for baby girls arrival in around 10 weeks…positive vibes only please 😂✌🏼

Squidge is still keeping us on our toes and we started this morning with a game of ‘what’s this dinosaur called?’ And no, I wasn’t the question master 😂



Spread a little joy this year; shop from the makers, creators, the crafters, the mamas, the visionaries - I promise, we’re all this happy when a sale comes through and you’ll get to see this joy on the recipients face when the gifts are opened 🎁



Which one is your favourite? My answer changes daily 😂

We can help you with gifts for little ones aged 2 upwards with varying degrees of chaos! Prices start from £3.99 with free delivery and we aim to dispatch the next working day at the latest!


P.S if you want to be the favourite Auntie or Uncle and the mess isn’t going to be at your house then I highly recommend the silly putty 🙊


🎄It’s beginning to look a a lot like Christmas….

Four of our orders over the last 48 hours have been marked as gifts and with the planned Royal Mail and CWU strikes coming up, it’s more important than ever for us all to shop early to avoid disappointment!

Orders will need to be in by the 19th December for guaranteed Christmas delivery. We will continue to post after that but with no guarantee on arrival date, so please order early to avoid disappointment!



❓Did you know…….

That when you ask a two year old to say ‘triceratops’ is can sound like ‘tri-sausages’?! 🙈😂 because I didn’t until this morning!

Our dinosaur flashcards provide hours of educational fun for all ages and even have facts about each dinosaur on the back of each card!




Very excited to announce I’ll be here on the 10th December for my one and only Christmas Market!
