There’s a science kit for just about any school subject you can think of: biology, geology, chemistry, and more. There are even kits for non-school related subjects such as forensic science. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with so many choices available. Here’s a checklist to keep handy when you need a science kit for your child.
Make sure the experiments are safe and easy. Experiments shouldn’t be too difficult. After all, you’re not in a lab. You want to avoid any damage to your home or child. If the experiment seems too complicated for your child’s level, pick something more suitable.
It’s also a good idea to get a kit that includes all the supplies you need. The only exception is if the experiment requires simple everyday items, such as cardboard, construction paper, baking soda, or something similar.
Pick a fun kit. Nothing turns a child against learning faster than boredom. Most science kits made for kids contain humorous instructions that make reading fun. It’s more like reading a comic than a science manual. The instructions should also be easy for most kids to follow, depending on their age.
The experiments should also be fun and interesting. Some popular experiments include building a volcano, creating a homemade robot, and making fruit batteries. A good experiment will be fun, but also teach the child and let them feel a sense of accomplishment.
Pick an age-appropriate kit. The recommended age range for the kit will be written on the box. For most kits, the recommended age range is from 9-years old and up. Of course, kits for younger kids will contain easier experiments than those for older kids. It might also be necessary for you to supervise your child, depending on their age.
Shopping for the Kit
The Internet is the best place to shop for a science kit. You’ll have access to a huge selection for different ages and subjects. You and your child can even sit down and pick the kit together. Your child will appreciate spending time with you, and being asked for their input.
