From time to time I get a text from a friend asking what I think are the best gifts for kids – age 6, 7, 8, 10, etc. This gift, Snap Circuits Jr., was sent to us by Emma’s (my 8 year old) godmother. It has provided us with hours of fun. JT (my 19 month old) loves to watch me build circuits and see them beep, buzz, and twirl. And then Emma and Sophie (my 6 year old) spend hours building them on their own. We even had their 10 and 12 year old cousins on the ground last week for an hour helping us to build the more complicated circuits. Trust me. It’s a great gift for children of all ages. Embrace your inner science nerd. It’s honestly so fun.
