This holiday, I am trying to boost my kids’ curiosity as well as get them engaging with things. For my son, that means a lot of history because that’s what makes him tick, however, for my daughter that means science!
First, you need some sort of direction and a good foundation for your science experiments. Lucky for me and you, I know some pretty brilliant writers. My friend Asia from Fun At Home With Kids has a graduate degree in Science Education (so she KNOWS what she is talking about) and she puts it all together for us in a great and totally beautiful book.
The Curious Kid’s Science Book: 100+ Creative Hands-On Activities for Ages 4-8
Now that you have awesome experiment ideas, here are some wonderful tools, toys, and activities. These are all the best science gifts I either have and love or want for my kids and students!
Rosie Research has these amazing Solar System Bracelet Kits – you can bead your own solar system!!
Learning Resources Primary Science Lab Gear – Next up, who doesn’t need a lab coat?
Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. My First Microscope – Of course, a microscope is a must for all science labs!
Learning Resources Primary Science Lab Set I love this set because you can use a lot of these tools with the Curious Kids Science Book.
Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit – If your child is curious about electronics, this set is a great place to start nurturing that curiosity!
Learning Resources Primary Science Mix And Measure Set – My kids like to use this mix and measure set in the bath and you can probably spy bits and pieces of it in different posts!
Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! is a playroom favorite. Gears get your child thinking about engineering, as well as thinking in multiple steps!
Melissa & Doug Magnetic Human Body Play Set – We have a bunch of Melissa and Doug magnetic dolls, but this new one is one I wish we did! What a fun way to learn about the human body.
Science is EVERYWHERE. If you want to be intentional and bring it into your home to spark your child’s curiosity, grab this book. Have fun with the easy and totally rad experiments inside!
