I keep raving about how much my little boy is all over anything hands on. He wants project books for Christmas. He begs to look up project ideas online. He won't let me check out picture books from the library anymore!
Well guess what?
I've found the perfect gift idea for my little science geek.
Review: Steve Spangler Science Kits
Price: $4.95 - $19.95 and up
Size: Small... from test tubes to small canisters to 4"x5" boxes
Mess Factor: can be high, but with supervision nothing 5yrolds can't handle
Aha Factor: What's NOT surprising and fun here? A Diet Coke Bottle Eruption!!? The teeny tiny frog robot kit (Robotikits) worked great! And look how cute this is? Hop Hop Hop... we found out it doesn't work through windows only outside. Great observations to be made.
Something else we loved playing with was the 'Insta Snow'. Talk about fun to watch, fun to play with and if you put it in a big enough bowl it wasn't messy either. And hey if you order any product today from SteveSpangler.com you get a container of Fake Snow free!
The last thing we had a ball playing with were the test tubes full of growing polymer experiments. From color changing beads to growing orbs, to a tiny alligater that GROWS! All with instructions and explanations and ideas for how to chart your 'projects'. Was my little boy in Heaven?? OH YEAH.
YGWYPF: (yougetwhatyoupayfor) I think the experiments are priced well. You do have to go buy your own Diet Coke, but the Mentos and tube are provided and $5 is a great stocking stuffer price. The frog solar robot is $14 and so far still working and entertaining us. The Insta-Snow is $10 for a small container but it's big enough for a LOT of fun, and perfect for stocking stuffing too!
