Science is one of those subjects or at least for us where it doesn’t come naturally. Up until now, we have kind of winged it! For elementary, we used a very ad-hoc homeschool science curriculum, but as Freddie is now going into middle grade I need to up my game! I have created this huge list of the best homeschool science kits that will hopefully help you.
Science and stem should not be boring, and 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.
