LITTLE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: LITTLE SCIENTISTS

Exploring how the world works is one of the most thrilling parts of childhood (“why is the sky blue?!”). I remember vividly getting my first chemistry set and mixing and tinkering and getting all sorts of smoking, bubbling, neon-coloured results!

So if your little one is showing an interest in the world around him (or her!) perhaps this year Santa should encourage them with one of these fabulously fun science kits – we have suggestions for little astronomers, chemists, electricians, physicists and all the sciences in between!

  1. THE ASTRONOMER

    John Lewis £54.95

  2. For the budding astronomer, this first telescope is a serious piece of kit! Lightweight and easy to use for your little one, it is not just made for kids and will last a lifetime. BUY HERE

THE BIOLOGIST

Conrad Electronic £33.99

  1. A brilliantly detailed junior microscope set, complete with slides and prawn eggs and a breeding tank to create your own viewing material!
  2. THE CHEMIST

THE ELECTRICIAN

Brightminds £24.99

  1. Can’t pry your iPhone out of your little one’s hands? How about a gift that will teach them the basics of electronics, with this kit that has over 100 experiments to learn about and design electric circuits. BUY HERE

THE PHYSICIST

  1. John Lewis £24.99

  3. THE BOTANIST

  4. Brightminds £9.99
  5. Gone are the days of waiting patiently for weeks while your flower slowly dries between tissue paper in a heavy book (by which point I had usually completely forgotten about it) – with this kit your junior botanist can preserve flowers and leaves in seconds using the microwave. BUY HERE

THE GEOLOGIST

John Lewis £24.99

Let your budding geologist build a working seismograph and fake some earthquakes to measure them like real scientists! BUY HERE

THE ENGINEER

  1. John Lewis £99.00

THE MAGICIAN

  1. Brightminds £14.99
  2. Perhaps some may argue whether magic counts as a science, but the principles behind the very cool magic tricks in the kit are very much rooted in every day science. And what kid doesn’t like a bit of magic? BUY HERE
