It”an amazing phenomenon really. You know, the one that happens down the isle of your local department store mid-August. The one that occurs as soon as the school supplies are swept away. We’re not even referring to the Halloween haunts that eerily drape the forbidden shelves of the candy isle. It’s the dawning of the silver bells and mistletoe. The red and green mayhem that consumes our thoughts and our pocketbook come early September. Christmas is coming!
And with that realization comes the panic and pressure to purchase the most original, creative, and cost effective gimmicks on the market for our dear ones. This Christmas season, some of the top selling toys for children include an Art table, Leapster Game System, Metal Detector, Barrel of Crafts, Money Savvy Piggy Bank, Quirkle (a board game), and a good old-fashioned Science Kit.
The stand out here on this list is that of the Science Kit. Science kits can fit the age and interest level of all children. Whether boy or girl, you can get hands-on science experience with kits for rocks and minerals, nature exploration, crystal growing, microchemistry, and even perfume making.
A science kit is actually the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does your child get the excitement of opening the package that is so meticulously wrapped in ribbons and bows, but they also get to experience new excitement each time they create with their kit. Whether they watch the intricate life cycle of a butterfly in a Butterfly Garden kit, extract DNA from fruit with a ScienceWiz DNA kit, or explore the fascinating diversity of bacteria with a Bacteria Experiment Kit, children will want to interact with their science kit daily.
So go ahead, meet the bell ringers and ostentatious gift displays head on. Face Christmas and enjoy it. This year, give your children the gift of science. They’re sure to enjoy into the New Year, and so will you.
