Welcome! I am glad that you are here. I invite you to subscribe & follow me on Pinterest, G+, Twitter, Facebook.Each year we always added at least 2 or 3 science kits hands-on to our homeschool. They were so much fun and the best way for our 2e child to learn.

My daughter learned so much from doing hands-on projects, especially during the cold winter months, when it was too chilly to play outside. It was nice and cozy inside when my daughter had a fun project to do. So we always included two or three hands-on kits or projects in our holiday gift buying for our daughter, when she was in the elementary years.
And she loved getting these gifts! At the same time, doing hands-on projects taught her so much, and with her ADHD tendencies, we saw improved attention span, concentration, attention to task, and more. And doing these activities or kits together made wonderful memories, too.
Here are a bunch of science hands-on gift ideas for you, including our favorites from educational publishers.
Let's start with science kits for experimentation:
Then, when my daughter was a little older, we found some great educational science kits from Science Wiz Kits. We especially loved these. Here is my review of one of them, if you would like more information.
And finally, I'd like to share some wonderful wooden construction kits that I found. At our house, my daughter started out making things out of cardboard and tape, and here's one that she made of the rides that she took at our state fair.
