Science in a box


{A science box of fun!}


Is summer vacation looming somewhere in your near future???  Are you wondering what to do with your kids when they are home from school??  How about making them a science box of fun?

I saw this idea somewhere else....unfortunately, it was bookmarked on my computer that crashed at Christmas and I have absolutely no idea how to re-trace my route to finding it.....my brain just doesn't do "backward" really well....


Updated:  I just discovered that Brandy from GLUESTICKS was my inspiration!  Thanks, Brandy, for letting me know! 



So....I'm going to confess something to you all....please don't think less of me with this confession....I am....by trade....a chemistry teacher ............Yes...I know.....when I share that it's usually met with groans and grimaces.  It's the worst class you ever had......you have horrible memories of a weird lab partner lighting Bunsen burners....moles....and too much math!

Actually, I love science....it's fun....it's exciting....(and if you don't have a good teacher, it can be horrible!)  I really enjoyed my days in the classroom and it just warms my heart now that my boys wanted a Chemistry set for Christmas....and OF COURSE, they got it!!


My boys and I wanted to share our love of science with my nephews, so we made a "science box of fun" for them.



Everything they need for days of science fun gets packed into the box!



We compiled a bunch of simple experiments and packed each one into its own bag.  In the bag was everything needed to perform the experiment.



We also added step-by-step instructions for each experiment. 


I made each experiment a different color and then I laminated it and put it on a metal ring.

Here's a link to some of the fun experiments that we did:



To keep things "thrifty," we just decorated an old shoe box with a paper bag, stickers and then hot-glued some glass beads and put a velcro closure on it.....simple and fun!

Happy experimenting!!

OOH! Nicole! My little boy LOVES Science this will be so much fun for him! Not only to do the 'experiments' but to help make up the box. I am going to 'try out' homeschooling over the summer - so this will be a cool thing and so helpful to me. Give me more! ;)

Tatum said...

How cool! And a chemistry teacher? is there anything you can't/don't do? Amazing

Unknown said...

I love this! Im always looking for unconventional ways to teach!

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

What a cool idea! My kid's LOVE science experiments.

Susan said...

LOVE THIS Idea!! Found you through a pin on pinterest.

Lissa said...

Oh my goodness - this is an awesome idea! I would love to have one of these boxes around for my 2 boys. What a great idea!

I made one for my kiddos last week and they loved it!

Johnnie said...

Great stuff Nikki! My nephew is going to love it.

Michelle said...

Oh my goodness this is amazing. I can't wait to put this together for the girls. BTW ~ Chemistry was one of my favorite classes in High School. I loved the different experiments, I had a great lab partner so I guess that helped :)

Mom's Sewing Vault said...

I just <3 loved <3 chemistry. In my case the teacher was a bit *personally* strange, but a great chemistry teacher. My most vivid memory was when he showed us how volatile sodium was, and used a chunk just a little too large to float in the water and it burned a little mark in the ceiling tile when it exploded. LOVED IT. But I also love math, so balancing equations was super fun - math AND elements!? Bring it on!

Lori said...

I love chemistry! Science is my favorite subject so my kids will get a lot of experience with it. LOVE this idea!

I loved Chemistry I took 2 classes a year every year I was allowed :)
My kids have inherited my love of science and history and I really want to put this together for them for Christmas. Any chance you have a printable version of the cards available and a material list?

Unknown said...

I would also be very interested in templates for the cards I am a new primary science teacher, I would love to hand some of these out as special treats for my students or at the end of the year. Thank you!

Nicole@Thrifty Decorating said...

Unfortunately, I don't have any templates. I just cut and pasted the instructions from the links that I include at the end of the post.

Hope that you try it....it's very fun!

I have one pending Python assignment and two upcoming ones. Therefore I need a python assignment help expert this week. However, before I proceed with taking your programming assignment helpI want to know whether I will be refunded my money if my work is not submitted on time. I also other programming languages so I might also hire C Assignment Help
expert and C++ Assignment Help expert. My friend told me about one Java Assignment Help expert and I want to hire the same guy. Is it possible? Also is it possible that a single person provides entire Programming Coursework Help? Also, many online platforms never take time seriously but I want to believe you don’t belong to that class. If you promise that the quality of my assignment will be good and there will be timely delivery then I am willing to work with you.


Maria Garcia said...

I have sent your Matlab assignment help team an email now. It just details my assignment requirements. I need a very good Matlab homework help tutor to be handling my numerical methods assignments. This is just the start because I just enrolled in a Matlab class. I, therefore, want someone who will be available and ready to deliver my work on time. If you have one very good Matlab expert then link me with them so that we can start the work immediately.

Marko Andreas said...

Hey guys. Other than the programming assignment help which I assume is meant for students only do you develop websites for organizations or individuals? I mean, can I use your Java assignment help service to get a corporate website designed? I am not a student but I want a sports website to be completed. I want to start writing sports news articles. With website development quoted among the services you offer I believe you can help me in this even though I am not a student. If you think it’s possible then contact me so that we can start working on it.

Hi. I am struggling with my Java programming classes. I was wondering whether you offer Java assignment help because I have some papers that I would like to be handled. The problem I have is that the deadline is within a week. Would you complete three papers within that period? If yes what would be the cost and what procedure should I follow to obtain your?

Danny Cortez said...

What a lucky week I had with you guys. I got a loyal customer discount by taking
Java homework help

from you. The task was completed at half price! I however believe I deserved it having hired you in my past 8 tasks. I don’t know how the discounting system from you works but at least I got it and I am grateful. Am sending a new assignment and therefore I want the best
programming assignment help
expert to complete it. I would be very happy to get another discount

I think two students had an A in our Java class. Funny enough both of us had our aIssignments completed by your Java assignment help team. Your programming assignment help team has simply been the best. In one of my papers, we were working until 4 am because the paper was due the following day. The tutor I had been assigned was good enough to keep updating me on the progress of the paper.
