Show Me Science: Slime, Crystals & More
Before your child gets bogged down with scientific equations and overwhelmed with taxonomical classifications, there is a period of scientific exploration that is full of wonder and eager excitement. Show Me Science is aimed at hitting that sweet spot. Because this age group can no more read the directions than they can pour the vinegar, Show Me Science will be the parent’s science kit.

It will be messy; it will be time-consuming, but it will make your little one’s eyes sparkle, and it will give him a thirst for science that should last a lifetime. We encourage you to allow your child to participate as much as possible, and we made sure that there will be many opportunities for that. Show Me Science’s collection of 30 child-friendly experiments will have your child clamoring for just one more. The kit includes nearly everything you need, except for the occasional common household or easily-procurable items. Full-color manual with step-by-step instructions and a link to online demonstrations is also included.

Note: Customers who used our 2018 or 2019 Kindergarten kit will find that Show Me Science is a remix of those years' science kit. If you prefer not to perform these experiments again, you can remove Show Me Science by using our custom kit builder.

The packaging box is lightweight and may not hold up well through bumpy transit or everyday use. Although we hope to see this kit upgraded to superior packaging in the future, families using this edition of Show Me Science may want to plan on investing in other storage materials.

    Science is a blast for all my kids!

    My five year old and his younger twin siblings are obsessed with science because of this kit.

    So easy and fun!

    My daughter absolutely loves doing these science experiments, and it is so helpful to have a kit that really does include pretty much every material you would need (except for water, plastic cups, a few common household items). My only wish is that there was a bit more explanation in the handbook as to the how/why/real life application for the reaction. I would absolutely purchase this again and am thrilled to have it as part of our science studies!

    Fun but needs more

    The experiments are very fun, but this kit would be a lot better if it gave more of an explanation as to why the things are happening the way they are. I was left to try to figure out ways to explain it so that my 6 year old would understand the actual science behind the experiments.

    Great

    I was surprised at how few things I actually needed to supply. I am used to buying these kids and then discovering that there are a million things for me to buy. This was great.

    it's fine

    This kit was fine, simple little science experiments, and you had access to videos from the kit makers you could watch to help your kiddo understand what you were doing in the experiment. Really don’t know how much of this we did because after our second was born, our kinder student would hang with my dad for “science time” (he's a retired science/math teacher) for a bit every other day or so, so I gave him the kit and haven’t seen it since.
