One of the things that I love most about being a mom is watching as my girls become interested in new and exciting things. Reese is 2, so her interests are basically whatever her sister is doing and "Doc McStuffins". Drew, having just turned 7, has quite a variety of interests. Most recently, she has expressed an interest in science! Luckily, we recently got to work with Discover with Dr. Cool to review the Purple Amethyst Crystal Growing Kit.
Discover with Dr. Cool, created by the husband and wife team of Jordan and Katie Willing, offers a line of science kits that aim to show kids the cooler side of science. Each kit offers an exciting hands-on experience that will inspire young learners with the wonders of the natural world. Based on our experience, I can say that these kits will definitely catch your young one's interest and will lead to some great conversations in the days to come!
Drew Was Pretty Happy!
Contents of the Kit
Drew was so excited to discover what was in the box. Reese was pretty excited too, but since she is a little too young to participate in a hands on sort of way, we had her (mostly) play spectator.
Drew Was Very Cautious and Did a Great Job Including Reese In a Safe Way
We were happy to watch our crystals form over the next few days. We made sure that our jar was in a spot that a little monkey (Reese) could not easily get to and where it wouldn't be moved because moving it would interfere with how the crystals formed. Drew was really interested in keeping track of the daily changes, sometimes checking on her crystals upwards of 10 times a day!
