Science is a dirty job...but someone has to do it! Basic chemistry experiments and some cooking projects populate this kitchen science kit that focuses on all things ick. With just a few food-grade ingredients and their trusty mixer, kids can whip up a batches of blood, buckets of boogers, or myriad (fake) maggots. Though the science behind the projects definitely comes second to the gross-out factor, it’s still pretty fun for kids who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.  (Smart Lab Toys, $24.99)
