3 Hands-On Gifts for Science-Loving Kids

Sure, video games are cool, but have you ever seen a kid squish slime through their hands, turn it into a bouncy ball, and then pull it apart as far as they can? There’s something deeply scientific about this sort of play that certain kids really gravitate towards.

The possibilities kids have with tangible toys like slime are endless. It’s just a matter of finding a toy for them that uniquely fits them and their interests. To help, here’s a list of hands-on gifts for science-loving kids.

A Geology Kit

First up, the time-honored geology kit. With examples of rocks from everywhere, these are sure to engage your child and feed a budding interest in the earth. The geodes included are tons of fun for them to roll around in their hands and investigate closely, especially because they differ so widely according to smoothness, color, and more.

Beyond the actual play, a geology kit motivates exploration. As they learn where certain geodes come from, they’ll want to visit these interesting places. There’s no telling where a simple geode set will take you.

Slime

Another solid (but actually squishy) option is slime. If you want to help your kid understand the laws of physics before they can put words to them, give them some time with slime. Because it’s a fluid-like solid, slime gives them an intro to states of matter. Meanwhile, stretching it out wide illustrates elasticity.

This doesn’t even account for the slime-making process if you so choose this route. Making slime involves combining some simple ingredients, but experimenting with different additives will keep your science-obsessed child satisfied for weeks. Whether you want quality ingredients or ready-made slime, you’ll need a quality slime gifting guide to navigate the burgeoning slime options.

A Microscope

Another classic hands-on gift for science-loving kids is the trusty microscope. Before you neglect this one because it sounds boring, think about what your kids can do with a little guidance.

If they want to see the tiny things on everything in their vicinity, equip them with a scope and empty slides they can create themselves. That means trips to the pond to see all those microscopic critters, visits to a forest near you, and probably some swabs from the dog, too.
