Agent Ribbit: Engaging Science Subscription Box for Kiddos! #Spon

**Complimentary products received in exchange for out honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently had the chance to review a fun new subscription box for kiddos, Agent Ribbit:


"Agent Ribbit sends you and your little detectives everything you need for exciting science investigations, every month! No combing through science books, no testing eight different volcano recipes to see which one actually works, no need to order 100 pipet droppers because you need just one. In each box, you'll find at least four science and creative projects and all of your supplies, all ready to go!"

As homeschoolers, we are always searching for fun ways to learn things.  Science is one of our kiddos' favorite lessons since there are so many hands-on ways to teach these important topics.  The benefit of Agent Ribbit is that all of the materials you need are gathered for you and a lesson is included for each experiment.  I love that there is a follow-up lab report for each experiment.  This insures the concept is understood adequately.  These experiments encourage the scientific method which is fantastic!  Our kit helped to get the kiddos even more engaged in the entire process and encourages exploration.  This cool kit is designed for kids ages 4-9 and every experiment was a huge hit with both of our kiddos, ages 5 and 8.

Here are the experiments from our Agent Ribbit kit:

BacteriGrow:


We got to swab for bacteria and watch it grow.  We tracked the growth of our germs for a week. A really interesting experiment!  We found out that between the dog's toes was far germier than than both under the toilet seat and the kitchen sink!  Actually, the sample from under the toilet seat was surprisingly the least germy:)


Germ Detective:


We learned about the importance of good hand washing habits by covering our hands in "germ gel" (kid-safe:) and using a UV light to see how clean our hands were after washing them for certain increments of time.  This was a ton of fun and there was plenty of material for several experiments...this was one they had to show Dad when he came home:)  They are still enjoying the included invisible ink pen/UV light:)

Disease Web:


We followed the story of a sick kid who, by not taking care, spread the illness to lots of her friends, who spread the illness to lots of their friends and so on.  This was a great way to visually show the kids how fast an illness can spread.


Influenza I.D.


We got to build a model of an influenza cell.  So much fun!


We loved our kit from Agent Ribbit!  It is a great, stress-free supplement to our regular science curriculum and would be great for rainy day fun (or as we're much more likely to experience here in Texas, those sweltering summer afternoons:)

Agent Ribbit is a really great value and full of wonderful, hands-on experiments that keep the kiddos engaged, learning and having fun!
