My seven year old is a big fan of science and technology. Since starting Girl Scouts she has learned about about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and she really enjoys these type of projects. I recently found a great company that sales these great little kits called 3Dmotokits by Simple Impulse. 3Dmotokits are little kits that provide everything you need to build a little motorized project. Each kit is different and includes everything you need to build the item. We got a couple of animal themed projects and a couple of vehicle themed projects.
The projects are a lot of fun. They are pretty easy to build, my seven year old can built them no problems with some light supervision. Once they are built they have a really fun motorized toy. Right now they have four series:
Dinosaur Series 1– let your kids build all their favorites like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Brachiosaurus.
Animals Series 1– bring the zoo to life with pandas, tigers, elephants and gorillas.
Construction Series 1– the basics needed to get any construction job done including:
backhoes, dumpers, forklifts and loaders.
Military Series 1– featuring classic military vehicles such as tanks, helicopters, jet fighters and fighter planes.
3Dmotokits are great for the holidays. I like to put things like this in the kids stockings. They are also great for gift baskets or just wrap up and give as a gift. Super fun and educational as well as fun.
