Are you looking for great STEM gifts this year? We’ve been lucky enough to review some brilliant products over the last few years, here are some of our favourites!
Some of the best science kits I’ve seen in a long time are these from Technology Will Save Us, we had great fun with the electro dough circuit set.
Another great find this year is this volcano from Learning Resources. It splits in half so you can the inside of a volcano and has a handy container for your eruptions.
Lottie Dolls have a great STEM range, prefect for inspiring imaginative play. We love how the dolls are so child-like and perfectly sized for little hands. There are also some great science activity ideas on the Lottie Doll website.
This explorer set would be a great gift with a little notebook and pen for recording observations.
I’d love these Magformers for my little boy too. What would you build?
We have this marble run from HABA and is is fantastic, you can get loads of accessories too which means the fun will last for years.
LEGO is so handy for all sorts of experiments and great for imaginative play, logic, fine motor skills and just generally great fun! We love a big box of bricks as well as a themed set. Zoobs and K’Nex are also great for building with.
The Learning Resources Super Sorting Pie is fantastic for improving fine motor control as well as colour recognition, sorting and counting practice.
We’ve also used this Learning Resources Classroom Up and Down Time Counter in lots of our activities recently, it’s a really useful tool to have around the house.
Makey Makey is a fantastic easy to use kit for older children. Just don’t forget to buy the bananas too so they can make a banana piano.
If you’re children love a good science book we’ve got some brilliant science book ideas here.
