This year we were able to celebrate Christmas early with my family. It was nice to not have to worry about shipping gifts since we went out to Utah to see everyone for my brother's wedding over the weekend. Here is one of the homemade gifts that we came up with. A SUPER Science Kit for my sister's family!
I went to this site and found a bunch of projects that I thought would be fun to try. They were all found under the "reactions" page. Then I made "recipe" cards, laminated them, and put them on a ring.
Each card matches a ziploc bag with all of the supplies needed to do the experiment. There were 12 or so projects.
Some of the ones we included were:

We spend an evening trying these out ourselves and had a great time!
Goggles, and some fun candy! Have you seen the fizzy Skittles? They don't taste that great, but do fizz up in your mouth. My kids liked that.
I grabbed this Mystical Tree and Lakeshore Learning. We picked one out for ourself. The kids had a great time watching it grow and it made for some pretty fall decor.
