Science Toys Stretch Young Minds
Education Through Exploration
Hands-on discovery is something every young mind can benefit from. Whether using items from the kitchen cupboard to create a homemade volcano, or putting together pieces out of a kit to construct a windmill replica, exposing science to kids is so important.
As children, me and my sister worked with her mini microscope to see what a shaft of hair looked like under a variety of lenses, and what a drop of saliva might show up when magnified. Growing up with other girls definately varied from what my boys delved into as children, and I actually learned a lot from my kids as they explored their world.
It is quite impressive to see the options available for toys in the area of science. Your kids can have their own science lab right at home, performing all kinds of amazing experiments.
Geared toward children as young as four years old, there are many great kits to choose from.
