Discover natural scientific phenomena in the living room (Lilu’s House)

How do I measure a room? Why is it so difficult to push a sofa over a fluffy carpet? From understanding spatial conditions to the friction effect, the living room offers children a wide range of opportunities to explore and discover scientific questions. At the same time they train speaking, reading and writing. The stories and the corresponding experiments can be read and performed independently of each other and their order can be changed.
