Becky from a Sweet Hot Mess is with us today to share an inspiring list of gift recommendations for the budding young scientists in our lives.
I have a deep and abiding love for Etsy. Not only does Etsy support makers, artists and crafters alike, it is also a resource for deeply creative materials. As my children’s interests have grown and changed over the years, I have learned to look far and wide for new ways to introduce subjects and to further study subjects we have already covered. I particularly love anything that makes science more fun for kids.
When looking for resources, one of my life rules is this – never underestimate your child’s ability to learn about themselves and the world around them at any age. And do what I do, start simple and build their knowledge over the years, utilizing your materials and resources over and over again.
Here are some of my favorite Etsy shops creating materials for young scientists. Check them out and Happy Experimenting (click on photo to view product).
