Looking for cool science kits for kindergarten kids? These toys are perfect for this age and encourage curiosity about how things work.
With three kids, we’ve had our share of science toys. From experiments to magnets, each one incited plenty of “oooh’s” and “aaah’s.” They’re fantastic gifts to give, whether your own or loved ones (in fact, many of these were given to my kids for birthdays or holidays).
Everything is a science experiment as they try to figure out why and how something works the way it does. And of course, they love the process, from mixing elements to building a structure.
It’s this curiosity that will serve kids well, prompting them to always think of new solutions or possibilities. They’ll feel confident with challenging the norm when their gut tells them otherwise. And they’ll continue to search for answers to any of their “what if” questions.
One of the best ways to nurture this curiosity in your child is through science kits for kindergarten kids. You can ask open ended questions to encourage her thought process and creativity, or prompt her with statements like “I wonder why…” or “What would happen if…”
These toys and kits I’ve gathered are also appropriate for younger kids. Your child might not be ready to build a solar robot yet, but these age-appropriate kits are perfect for this stage. I hope you find a few great ideas to nurture her interest in science:
