Howdy y'all. I'm a scientist, wife is a teacher. Together we have been creating really cool 'toys' for kids to play with where they are secretly discovering things for themselves.
We have spent a lot of time sitting next to the bathtub, so our first product was the Bathtub Laboratory kit, this kit is made for practicing volumes and pouring. I (the husband/scientist) got talked out of food coloring as it made a giant mess in the bathroom. However I did not back down from the syringe (it shoots water like 5 meters if you are not careful!) All lab grade equipment!
Next we made a benchtop kit that does have food coloring (we wanted to see red and blue make green)- so the Starter Test Tube Laboratory Kit was born! This kit is very fun, you can:
Transfer pipettes Volume: 3 ml. Graduation: 0.5 ml Nonsterile, Polypropylene
Sold OutMy kids love to play in my lab, but they shouldn't! However, playing in the bathtub is an awesome idea. I have collected bathtub appropriate REAL LABORATORY EQUIPMENT and put it into a hanging mesh bag. It is made of polypropylene, so it can be thrown around and won't break easily- perfect for the tub. The package comes with a graduated cylinder (100ml), 3 beakers (250ml, 100ml, 50ml), a syringe (10ml), a funnel, a dripper, a mesh bag to drip dry the equipment, and a suction cup with a hook to hang the bag on the bathtub wall. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do with my kids! Safety note: As with most bathtub activities, don't leave the kids unattended. There are small parts so it is intended for kids 6 and up.

We have had so many requests for a kit that focuses just on the color mixing, that we put this one together. It contains more of the CONCENTRATED food coloring as our Beginning Science Kit so that more mixing can be done. You can refill with your own food coloring from your local mega-mart.
