    Multiple Ways to Play January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Miss Jenn  
    We keep finding new ways to use our Early Science Explorer's Kit! The children are constantly inspecting things inside and outside and we are loving the little tweezers for everything from craft projects to adding a new spin to board game play! Mom's even getting use from this set, as just the other day I grabbed the magnifying glass to get a closer look at one of my kiddos fingers, so I could see the splinter under their skin. I'm impressed with the quality of the magnifying glass and the durability of both utensils.

    Daily Preschool Use January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Texas Mom  
    We have loved our explorer's set for about 6 months now and I think it has gotten nearly daily use. The magnifying glass has been fun to look at leaves and fingerprints and sidewalk cracks. The tweezers are great for small hands and we incorporate them into daily play either in the kitchen or in guided sorting activities.

    Great tools for our nature study! June 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Denice  
    I bought this for my daughter when she was four years old. We have used it countless times over the past couple of years, mostly for our nature walks and nature studies. Both items are oversized and "chunky", perfect for younger children. Also, the larger magnifying glass area makes it even easier for multiple children to see what is being viewed at the same time! My daughter has both items packed in her backpack, ready to explore God's great outdoors!
