Keeping kids entertained can be a challenging task. Finding activities that will keep grasp their attention and grow their knowledge is even harder nowadays with access to devices such as tablets and phones.
We were sent Thames & Kosmos Amazing Minerals and Prehistoric Sea Dogs in exchange for a review.
Considering these science kits are suitable for ages 8+, I did allow my 6 and 4 year old help my 8 year old son with the science kit. With lots of supervision.
The kits come with everything you need to complete the experiments
My boys all worked together to find the ‘hidden gems’. They all got stuck in. Talking about what types of gems they were going to find. Giving each other instructions and helping each other. Now, if you’re a parent of multiple children you will know what a miracle for this to happen is!
My boys spent around 30-45 minutes excavating the ‘rock’ to find the ‘hidden gems’
To see their excitement when they found one was amazing!
PIN ME FOR LATER
As a parent, I absolutely love these Thames & Kosmos Science kits. They are very simple to set up. The Amazing Minerals set was messy. I set it up for them in a miniature tuff tray. But, hey what’s a bit of mess to kids having fun and learning?!
I think that they are really good value for money and great to keep in the house for a go-to activity for those rainy days or ‘mum I’m bored’ moments.
Mckenzie who is 8 said ‘I liked it, it was fun. I really liked finding the gems. It was like an adventure finding the gems.
