Help Plan Rosie’s Science Kit


My daughter (7) asked for a real science kit, “not a toy one.” I had the idea of an big box of fun junk that she could play with, without roping her into doing lame experiments. So help me design this box! If you can think of something I missed, add your idea to comments. Everything should fit into a big tackle box.
