<p>This is a perfect DIY project to be done with loved ones during semester breaks especially if you have school kids at home. They get to be creative while picking up a thing or two about Science. Whilst accomplishing all that, we get to bond and promote family togetherness at the comfort of our own home sweet home.</p>
