Science Kit for Curly
A little bit ago I posted a Vet Kit for Princess, in that post I promised to post other kits and things that I made for Christmas presents this year. So as promised here is a science kit that I made for my Beautiful Curly Headed Niece – we’ll call her Curly.
After checking out Jenae’s ideas and printables I took stock of what I had, what I could purchase locally, and the science experiments I have done with some of the homeschool co-op classes I have taught. From there I put together some printouts for Curly and made the kit. Here are the contents of the kit. I will also include links to the experiments (as most of them I did not come up with on my own, but found online.)
General Science Supplies :
Experiment Specific Supplies:
Superfluous, but Super Cool Science Supplies
Also included (but not pictured) were the following:
- a CD – Reflecting Rainbows Experiment
- File Cards – File Card Bridges
- Petri Dish (2) – Just because they are cool and what scientist wouldn’t want a petri dish!
The experiments I included were the following:
- Create Evaporation by Weather WizKids
- Reflecting Rainbows by Exploratorium
- Light It Up by Homeschooling-ideas.com
- Geodesic Gumdrops by Exploratorium
- File Card Bridges by Exploratorium
- Crystal Creations by Exploratorium
- Mallow Blaster by Family Capers
I thought about including a Mentos Geyser Tube, but as I was making this for my niece and wanted my sister to continue to speak to me, I decided against it.
I printed all of the experiments and put them into a three ring binder. All of the supplies I put into a basket that I found at the dollar store.
The supplies along with the binder fit nicely into the basket. In the front of the binder I added a Cover page, a table of contents and a supply list. You can see the original here, or you can download it as a World Document so you can edit it for your own kit.
Let me know if you have any questions about how to make your own science kit. Enjoy!
