7 Top Gifts For Whizz Kids
Give your child a fun way to get interested in engineering with the stylish Learning Resources Space Explorers Building Set. Help them develop fine motor skills as they piece together all the gears, along with critical thinking as they make sure every gear spins when they turn the handle.
What child doesn’t want to play mad scientist? Or should I say, encourage them to practice safe science! Science is messy business, so keep them clean whilst looking the part thanks to the stylish Primary Science Lab Gear, with adjustable goggles.
Out of this world gifts
Introduce your child to astronomy with the Geosafari Jr My First Telescope which is designed for children as young as four to use with ease. With ten time magnification, whizz kids can use it for looking at birds, as well as looking to the stars!
Another way to encourage an interest in astronomy from an even younger age is the Primary Science Shining Stars Projector. This simple to use projector includes three disks with close up images of space that can be shone onto any flat surface (but light-coloured walls are best!) and will allow your child to learn by themselves. Additional disks are available to engage their curiosity with other topics like animals.
The human body is a strange and wonderful thing, and the Horrible Science Blood Bones and Body Bits kit is the perfect way to get your child interested. Your little one can get hands on with some gruesome experiments that’ll teach them about bodily functions. The set includes a 28 page top secret lab notebook – what’s not to love?
How cool is the Plum Super Space Rocket Wooden Play Set? This fantastic play set forms one giant space rocket or splits out into 4 mini shuttles. Thanks to the mini ships, vehicles, robots, aliens and astronauts that populate it, there’s loads little ones to engage with!
The set is durable and made from chunky brightly painted wood. Thanks to the interactive parts like the grabber or lift, it’ll keep your little one engaged for a long time.
My Star buy is the Learning Resources Zoomy 2.0! An amazing way to encourage your child’s natural curiosity, the Zoomy 2.0 is a microscope with a difference. The Zoomy 2.0 is designed for small hands and is incredibly simple to use, even for young children.
Compatible with computers, Macs, interactive whiteboards and projectors, your child can take photos or videos to preserve their interest in the world around them. A perfect gift for Christmas!
