Looking for the right DIY gift idea? Try these science experiments!
Every year we make all our friends and neighbors gifts for Christmas and deliver them to their door. It’s a tradition we started years ago and still continue. So what kind of gifts? Well, for us we like to create one family gift, and then one gift for the kids, and one gift for Mom and Dad, then put it all into a gift basket. Check out last years baskets! I can’t tell you about this years baskets because I don’t want to give anything away! Although, its very probable that some of these experiments will be gifted!
