I love giving educational gifts. I’m totally ‘that’ aunt. Kids are having fun and don’t even realize that they are learning! Learning and having fun is a winning combination! Kids are natural born scientists. These gifts for kids who love science are sure to be appreciated.
Many of these items are things we already own. The rest are on my shopping list.
Gifts For Kids Who Love Science
This handheld video microscope can magnify images up to 200x. Connect it to your television screen via the included A/V cable and everyone can look through the microscope at the same time. The handheld portablility allows kids to magnify a wide range of materials and objects – not just what will fit on a slide!
Lab coats are the perfect accessory for science lovers. Kids can protect their clothing during messy experiments while also feeling like a professional scientist. This long sleeve lab coat comes in a variety of sizes, from 2T – 14.
Snap circuits allow children to create over 200 projects just by snapping together electrical circuits. There are many Snap Circuit sets that coordinate, allowing kids to build impressive electronics. This is recommended for ages 7 and up, but my son began using the basic set at 4 years old with no difficulty.
These high resolution binoculars allow kids to explore their backyard, local playground, and favorite camping spots. They are coated with a shock proof material to protect against the inevitable drops. These binoculars are available in blue and green. I have gifted a few pairs of these binoculars to my nephews and they are always well received.
This Toysmith Rock Science Kit teaches kids how to identify different types of rocks. The kit contains fifteen different rock samples. A small magnifying glass is also included. I love to add books to gifts. This Everything Rocks and Minerals book by National Geographic has stunning photos!
The Makey Makey Kit is perfect for anyone interested in science and electronics. The kit lets you turn every day objects into keyboard keys. You can use it to play music with bananas, a video game with play dough, and countless other possibilities. Use the included USB cable to connect the Makey Makey controls to a computer or television screen and just follow the included directions.
Geodes are a fantastic for kids who love geology. They never know exactly what they will see as they smash open the geode. This Break Your Own Geode kit comes with 4 geodes. This is recommended for ages 8 and up because they will need to use a hammer (not included) to open the geodes. We have done this a few times and I strongly recommend breaking the geodes outside.
This classic experiment using Mentos candy and soda is always a child pleaser. Just use the tube to drop the included Mentos into soda and watch the geyser erupt. We have completed this experiment many times and it always ends in lots of laughter. This gift is sure to be a hit if you add a bottle of soda.
Take clay creations to the next level by adding a little LED bling. Perhaps add glowing eyes to your clay monster? This is the perfect gift for kids that love science and art. This kit includes everything needed – the clay, LEDs, a battery pack (batteries not included), and an instruction book.
This science gift is aimed at the baby and toddler crowd. This Goodnight Lab book is a parody to the classic Goodnight Moon. Click through to see a few preview pages!
Ask Magazine is geared toward 6 – 9 year old science fans. An Ask Magazine subscription is great for any child who is constantly asking, “why?”.
Muse Magazine is like the older sibling of Ask Magazine. It is intended for 9-14 year olds. The articles are a bit more in depth than the younger version.
