Eww! Slime! Heh, the kids think its pretty cool.


Art kits, science kits, or pretty much anything that made my mom cringe as she knew I was about to make a huge mess was one of my absolute favorite gifts to receive on Christmas or my birthday as well, I knew otherwise she wouldn't buy them. My grandfather was always the one to really allow me full range of my artistic and scientific skills allowing me to do anything from drop dry ice in the sink when grandmother wasn't looking or melt crayons over open flames in the back yard. I made a promise to myself when I had kids I'd try to be as open to the idea.

The Young Scientist Club offers a huge selection of really cool kid friendly science kits that are not only incredibly fun but really quite educational as well. The kit itself is actually pretty simple with a cute little test tube rack and tubes and most of the supplies you need to get to work. Actually everything is disposable once your done so cleanup is pretty simple as well. You will need a few common items from around the house to complete the experiments including milk, vinegar, salt, plastic baggies.. ect. Nothing that most households don't already have. The kit comes with a scientist book that talks about hypothesis and conducting your experiments which is great for the older kids but it may be a bit over the head of the smaller children. No worries though you do not need to go that in depth in the experiments to wow and amaze the smaller audiences. It is a great little tool though for the older kids working on their own or under supervision of adults. I could see this as a fabulous tool for homeschoolers as well!

We only did a few of the experiments and still have quite a few left to do. I borrowed a few family friends to help me conduct my little scientific experiments but I'll be honest with you guys I would have been just as excited to do them on my own as the kit is really quite fun. I was really expecting a huge mess as well which was not at all the case. We did the Magic School Bus Diving Into Slime, Gel, and Goop set and thus far our favorite experiment was making a bouncy ball out of the polymers included.

You can check out the entire line of Young Scientist Club sets on their website as well as the entire line of Magic School Bus scientist kits!

We have one Young Scientist Club kit to give away to one lucky reader. One reader can choose between the Magic School Bus Going Green or Magic School Bus Slime, Gel and Goop Set!

First off, you are SO right! I do not know why, but kids (boys AND girls) seem to love slimy, disgusting things! My favorite kit at the Young Scientists website is the Series set 9 (Magnetism/Static Electricity/Tornadoes, Clouds and Water Cycle); I know my son would love these experiments. If I win, I would pick the Magic School Bus Slime, Gel and Goop Set (there we go with the kids loving slimy things!)
