Having a child can be sort of scary. You have a little human which you need to feed, water, clothe, and teach about all of everything. They learn language, logic, and a myriad of skills from you. Seeing that you can only learn so much so fast, you have to be a bit choosy as to what you expose your little one to early on.
If you want to teach them more than the name of a color, why not get the Light Tech Lab? It’s meant for children ages 8 and up, but if it’s something you’re interested in, I doubt anyone is going to try and stop you from getting it. As we all know, the best way to learn is by doing, and this will allow you to do just that. It’s a light bending and blending kit in which you can do all sorts of neat tricks with colored lights. There are red, blue, and green LED lights included in this kit which are obviously capable of creating a myriad of other colors.
There are also concave, convex, and trapezoid frosted lenses, a diffraction grating, 2 acrylic mirrors with stands, a protractor, and an activity guide. You’ll be able to do ten different experiments with this kit, but keep in mind that learning often leads to more questions, so just prepare yourself. It will cost you $50, which is a hefty sum for something you might only use a few times, but considering how much is spent on toys in general for kids, this isn’t that bad. The ability to understand this sort of thing is not something most children are able to do, or most adults for that matter. Might as well start young while it’s easier to ingrain into their minds.
