For my daughter’s most recent birthday, she REALLY wanted a science kit. She was ecstatic to receive a Big Bag of Science and couldn’t wait to get started. Now that we’ve completed almost ten of the activities, she and I both give it a big thumbs up!
Everything you need (with the exception of water, pencil, and notebook) is included in the package.
I just read each activity out loud word for word, and she gathers the materials needed for each experiment.
I really thought it was going to be fun activities with very little “science” thrown in here and there, but I have to say it is actually perfect for kids. She is learning vocabulary I didn’t learn until high school or college. As a matter of fact, today she was fluently using the words “chemistry,” “pipette,” “color solution,” and “polymer” in our conversation. I love that she is becoming familiar with these words at an early age. As a student in high school, I was a straight-A student, but I struggled at times to really grasp chemistry. This science kit, in my opinion, is helping lay a nice foundation for her future studies in chemistry.
She just thinks it’s fun! She records her observations in a small notebook, and it is really rewarding for me to see!
I honestly think she could spend hours making color solutions with the pipette and test tubes. This would be a great activity for kids during the summer, and it would make a great gift!
If you try it, let me know what you think!
