Pre-Packaged Gross Science
We have this squishy human body set and the boys love playing with all the organs! It can be a bit to tricky to put them all back into the body, though.
This Gross Science Lab kit has 26 experiments for kids, including a motorized toilet bowl mixer!
Grow Your Own Praying Mantis Kit: We love doing butterflies and have even done ladybugs (which were a little on squeamish side for me). The thought of ants in my house, even if they’re contained, makes me squirm. But praying mantis’s take the cake for being the grossest insect to watch grow in your house. Blech.
