Why families love MEL Kids

Our @melscience subscription box was an awesome science experience! My son, in particular, adored it. He kept calling it "our science experience".
The kids had so much fun learning! … Amazing! My kids are Homeschooled and this has totally added to their learning experience, I look forward to our next subscription box ⚡️🙏🏽😊
The AR portion of our project was a great way to provide some further learning in a fun and unique way and those extra activities in the book really rounded out the whole experience for us.
