One of my all time favorite gifts to give kids of all ages are science kits, particularly this Primary Science Lab Set by Learning Resources. I purchased it as a holiday gift for my daughter back when she was only 3 years old and, as you can see in the picture above, it still gets plenty of use. 🛍️ This post contains affiliate links– thank you for supporting us.
Both of my daughters enjoy following the simple steps on the experiments cards included with the kit. They also have endless fun using the beaker, magnifying glass, eyedroppers, tweezers, goggles and test tubes with just water, vinegar and baking soda. Add some food coloring and they play for hours! I like this set in particular because the items included are sturdy and hold up over time.
A science kit is a fantastic gift for any age. We have tried others like this My First Mind Blowing Science Kit by Scientific Explorer. This one doesn’t have all of the fancy supplies like the Learning Resources kit but the price is right for 11 different fun experiments. Some experiments in this kit may need adult assistance; it makes for a fun family activity.
