All you need for Science at Home

As well as trying to make science fun, I also try to make most of our activities accessible to everyone by only using equipment you already have at home. I’ve bought funnels, measuring cylinders and magnets, but not much else. Science at home is such a great way to get all the family involved in exciting activities and you can all learn together. I often find that one activity leads to another as the children ask more and more questions.

Here’s a full list the things we use most often, that I always try to have in the kitchen ‘just in case’

If you’d rather a more traditional science based  gift, we have some more great ideas in our gift guide.

We’ve also got a very cool Numeracy box, great for younger children starting to explore numbers.
