Science and fun experiments are definitely something we love in our home. More recently we have been ordering our lab supplies from Home Science Tools, but their company offers so much more than just lab materials!

Over the next several days, I will be sharing some great giveaways from Home Science Tools to both get your family thinking of science-related gifts for Christmas and to put some tools in your hands that will make science even more enjoyable!

Today’s giveaway features TWO products and both are described a bit below, but Iā€™d encourage you to visit the Home Science Tools website and check out their science gift guide as you begin your second semester planning and holiday shopping.
