Adding homeschool science kits to your school week is one of my top homeschool tips.

Science and stem should not be boring. Playing with these awesome science kits is the best and easiest way for us to have fun within our homeschool.
These science kits are for kids aged 8 and above. I have also included monthly science kits that are delivered to your children every month.
We use these homeschool science kits as a fun supplement to our homeschool science curriculum. But if you are looking for science gifts for teenagers check out our top gift ideas.

Science Kits for Homeschool
There are many science kits available for homeschoolers to use as part of their science curriculum.
If you are unsure what the right science kit is for your homeschool, I highly recommend this awesome science kit selector tool from Home Science Tools. We get all of our science supplies and homeschool science labs from them and they are great.
You can choose by age, grade, or by science subject you are interested in.
But these below are some popular options:
Terrarium Kit is so much fun for kids of all ages. Create your very own mini-ecosystem and watch the plants grow. These science kits include everything you need, just add water.
Crystal Growing Science Kit. Mix the chemicals and watch the crystals grow, blue, red, and white. Great for kids over the age of 8.
Earth Science Kit comes with over 15 science activities. Including a great erupting volcano experiment.
Dynamo Lab comes with 21 science experiments in one box. Including creating your own lava lamp.
Weather Science Lab. As we live in South Florida the weather is generally at the forefront of our minds. So these weather science labs are a great way to recreate your own weather. Plus learn about climate change at the same time.
You will also enjoy our free preschool weather worksheets.
