DIY Science Kit for Girls

FullSizeRender (5)

How many of us have bought a doctor’s kit for our daughter? Why not her own scientist kit? Perhaps we thought it would be too expensive and would be a waste if she didn’t like it.

Wouldn’t it be a powerful message to make her very own science kit?  One that she can use to create, invent, dream, and experiment?

You can make your own kit for under $20 at the dollar store and to-date we’ve done at least 5 experiments with it.

Set her up with her own corner to explore (with some adult supervision) and she can create her own unique experiments.

Giving her this freedom to explore is key to helping her love science.

Here are the 5 experiments with instructions and items to include in your kit.  Click here to access a free printable to add to the kit.
