It’s hard to find the perfect gift. But we think your kids (or niece, nephew, or grandchild) will be pretty thrilled with these science kits and toys. And you can enjoy their wonder and excitement as they experience fizzy chemical reactions, butterflies hatching from chrysalises, and robots that can navigate around obstacles.
One of the joys of this age, in the 8- to 10-year-old range, is how much they can do on their own but still with the enthusiasm of kids. Take advantage of this adventurous stage by giving them fun hands-on projects like a crystal-growing kit, or even real tools like a just-the-right-size microscope.
Girl or boy, you can give a great gift to encourage their interests! Does he or she like to construct things? Try the Bridge Building Kit. Likes to tinker? Introduce electronics with Snap Circuits. Loves to be outside? Get a Rock Hound’s Backpack Kit for exciting exploration!
