As a homeschooling mom I am constantly looking for ways to make our work a little more fun. There have been times when I knew we had fallen into a little bit of a rut and William has confirmed that on more than one occasion, too.
I know that not everything is fun and games but it’s no secret that kids learn better when they are having fun. When ever I say we are doing something fun William says the same thing, “Is it science?”
And by science he means experiments. He loves experiments. What kid doesn’t?
When I saw that Little Passports has a new monthly subscription all about science I was very interested. I went on their site, read the reviews and looked at the stuff that comes in this box. It is so cool.
Little Passports gave me a box a couple months ago to review for you guys so I asked them to send me a Science Expeditions box also. They are so awesome over there. They sent us a box for William to explore.
The Science Expedition is actually meant for kids 9 and up but William was still able to really enjoy this! Really, all the kids enjoyed the awesome things in this box.
So what’s in the box?
Pictured above is the the bag to store all the new sciencey things. Good quality bag. William loved it as you can see on his face.
A really cool notebook to keep track of how the experiments go. I love the look of it and it’s really great quality. All of their stuff is really great quality.
On to the experiments! The theme of this bag was Forensic Science. We started out with a splatter experiment. We saw what we can learn by the size and shape of a splatter.
We got the tools to make a pretty cool splatter. You can see Jenn working on her splattering in the background of this photo below while William learned about fingerprints.
We learned about what we can learn from a fingerprint. Did you know there are three main types of fingerprints? We used the ink pad and notebook to take our own fingerprints and then examined then. We also had fun seeing if we could copy each other’s signatures.
This box was a lot of fun for all of us. I didn’t get any photos of the last experiment but we got to learn about DNA using a strawberry. This led to a lot more exploring and experimenting.
Like I mentioned before, this box is meant for kids 9 and up. However, all my kids loved it. There were different aspects of each project that any age could enjoy. William still carries around his notebook and the experiment book.
This was perfect for a kid like William. He loves science and experiments. This would be something I would use with homeschooling every month. It’d be a great addition. I love how it comes monthly so once a month you can get a change of pace to the homeschool day.
