Another classic! Our hand boiler is a great science toy for teens and grown-ups, and a fabulous demonstration of energy transfer. Holding the lower bulb in in your hand causes the liquid inside to boil, shooting into the top bulb as a result. The hand boiler is an excellent Easter gift for ages 14 and older.

Ooze Labs 9: Glowing Galaxy Slime

Parent Review: "This was a really fun experiment, and as a parent I loved that the mess was contained to the tube and a cookie sheet we used as 'backup' for any mess created. The kids loved it!" This introduction to the world of slime makes a fabulous Easter basket filler for kids ages 7 and up.

Primary Science Big View Bug Jars

These rainbow-colored jars are topped by "ladybug wings" that open and close, inviting little learners to observe insects. When the wings open, a 3.5x magnifying glass is revealed. A screw-on cap and built-in air vents keep your captured critters safe and secure. Don't forget to free your bugs once your investigations are complete! Primary Science Big View Bug Jars are fantastic Easter basket stuffers for preschoolers and children ages 3 and up.
