6 New Science and Discovery Kits for Kids

Kinetic Sand Dino Dig

This amateur archaeology-themed science set is a new twist on a cool kinetic sand toy that’s been on the market for a while. The basic kinetic sand kit consists of actual sand that’s been coated with a special polymer/plastic substance that makes it look wet—except it never dries out. The sand is moldable and delightfully tactile—and the newest kit now includes dinosaur bones that kids can dig up and then piece together like a puzzle. Digging tools and an information booklet with fun dinosaur facts are included. All of the elements are non-toxic and safe for kids.
