This is the sixth in my Christmas Presents for or from Science Geeks series, the previous ones can be found here.
I have couple of little collectors and noticers on my hands here. You know what I mean – “Look! There’s a beetle/dead leaf/dragonfly/shiny rock!” And somehow I seem to end up carrying it all around in my bag. (Not the dragonflies, I’m allowed to admire them from a distance. But if they thought I could catch them I’m sure they would be fair game.) So for Christmas this year they are both getting collecting bags, so they can carry it all around!
- Sunhats – These are on my list of essentials that can be given to any kid as a present. Especially now so many schools have a no hat no play policy they can’t have too many. These lovely bucket caps are by an Australian WAHM, Silly Gilly.
- Bug Watcher – For catch and release 😀 I like these because they have a couple of little magnifyers on top that can be used on rocks as well.
- Field Journal – This is an A5 book with a heavy cover, I didn’t go for prettiness but you can cover them. One thing I like about this one is it has a spot up the top to record date and weather, just what you need for making observations 😉 The little girl will only scribble in hers, but she loves being like her big sister.
- Pen – with lid and string to go around their neck so it isn’t lost.
And for everyone else out there with a little science geek, I have a collecting kit to give away. Just let me know in the comments here what it is that your little one collects with a passion and if there’s something else that should go in the bag. The winner will be randomly drawn on the afternoon of Wednesday 1st of December.
