Welcome back to Science Sunday! This week I want to tell you about a set of toys that is designed to get even young kids (3 and up) interested in science. The basic principles of science and S.T.E.M. is add one thing to another and see a reaction. When you’re younger you tend to focus on and remember those visual effects that you were shown. Think fireworks. We all remember fireworks because they are visually stimulating. How about things that undergo a color change or simply making your own bubbles? Those actions would also be quite memorable.
GeoSafari Jr Jungle Crew Lab Set from Educational Insights is also a memorable set that your kids will want to play with. Inside you have a rhino beaker, lion and cub cylinders, elephant funnel, monkey dropper and a pair of hippo tweezers, all safari animal based. They are super cute (and great for any animal lover) and are made of sturdy plastics so nothing will break during experiments. There is even a 10 card experiment set designed just for little ones. The experiments are simple and effective at teaching science principles. My little ones loved the bubbles, slime time, and muddy buddy. I think they liked them the best because they got the messiest while doing the experiment. My son is 3 so at the bottom of the age range for use and he was able to do the experiments with help.
As the parent doing the experiments, I love how easy they are with only a few extra needed ingrediants. The experiments clean up easy and can be repeated without much effort so you can really help your kids understand the science principles as they grow up. I am loving this S.T.E.M. learning set and think that you would too. Which tool is your favorite?
