We built electronic circuits with Snap Circuits.
Snap Circuits are a favorite educational toy in our house. They are a
series of different kits designed to teach young children about
electronics. Electrical components such as resistors and capacitors are
mounted on large plastic pieces. The pieces are labeled with typical
electrical symbols and snap easily into place on a plastic knobbed
If you are interested in Snap Circuits, the SC-100 or SC-300 kits below are the best places to start as they contain basic components. The SC-300 is similar to the SC-100, but contains more parts and project ideas. Upgrade kids are available. We own the SC-300 and the Sound kit. My son doesn't know it yet, but this year I'm planning on getting him the motion kit for his birthday. A local homeschooling friend has several kits including the Green Energy kit which she loves.
