Today I’m sharing a homemade gift idea that we did for my sister’s family. A Science Kit for my sister’s family! Science kits for kids are always fun, and this one was fairly inexpensive since it was homemade and uses every day items!
I went to this site and found a bunch of projects that I thought would be fun to try. They were all found under the “reactions” page. Then I made “recipe” cards, laminated them, and put them on a ring.
Each card matches a ziploc bag with all of the supplies needed to do the experiment. There were 12 or so projects.I made a pdf version of the cards. They aren’t anything special, but feel free to use them if you’d like. Just cut out the recipes and mount on cardstock.
Some of the ones we included were:

We spend an evening trying these out ourselves and had a great time!
Goggles, and some fun candy! Have you seen the fizzy Skittles? They don’t taste that great, but do fizz up in your mouth. My kids liked that.
I grabbed this Mystical Tree and Lakeshore Learning. We picked one out for ourself. The kids had a great time watching it grow and it made for some pretty fall decor.
This was such a fun gift to put together. A little time consuming, but so worth it. My sister’s family is so creative and active. We couldn’t think of a more perfect family to make this for.
How does one wrap a huge cauldron? This is all I could think of without using an entire roll of wrapping paper 😉
