What science experiment kits have you loved?
August 31, 2013 at 3:35 PM

Looking for recommendations for Science experiment kits.  I already have a  science program for teaching but want to find a few kits for DH to do with DD on weekends.  I want them to be all planned out, with everything they need in the kit so that he can just open the box and go.

What do you recommend?

    I went with just getting Science tools and then making our own experiments.

    Yesterday, we explored the Science of Chocolate chip cookies!

    It's not really a kit, but we found a Solar Airship toy and a discount shop and bought it, it was so cool!  We used in while standing in the middle of the cul de sac, because really, at 25' long it wouldn't fit anywhere else.

    Not sure how old your dd is, but we use the Magic School Bus kits and my 7 yo son LOVEs them.

    Home Science Tools sells complete kits that coordinate with many different curriculum packages. I'm ordering the kit that goes with BJU 6.
