Science with Daddy!

For Christmas I made My husband and our boys a “Science with Daddy kit”!


The inspiration for this idea was these cute little science stands that the boys made at a Lowes Building Clinic. They also got a free pair of goggles each!


It came with experiment idea cards and I had more of my own to add(No idea where to get them, they were left behind here when we bought our house). We stuck all of the cards into a page protector on the front of the lid.


Anyway, I went through all of the cards with my husband and he picked out ones that sounded fun to him. Then I went to work making a list of every material and then filled the bucket!

I plan to share the activities they do and the first one they chose was the volcano! Not surprised!


So cute in the goggles and the little play-doh cans were perfect for holding the test tubes!

They absolutely loved this time with Daddy and can’t wait to do more! I have some plans to add to this with a dry erase sheet where they can write predictions and out comes and “Why it works”. For now they are just having fun with their Daddy!

  2. I have taught kindergartenfor 34 years and continue to look for new ideas. Love your site. I will use some of your ideas in the classroom, but will also use some at home for my grand children.

    side note: I laminate the pages I use for counting, print someting on front and back, and most sheets are on construction paper.
    Example: Trees for counting apples, have a Christmas tree on back.

  3. Do you have a list somewhere of what's in your Science with Daddy Kit? I love this idea. I have a budding scientist and we're always looking for new ideas. You have a wonderful blog.
