With Christmas fast approaching, now is the time to be looking into gift ideas for your family. It may seem too early, however what a fantastic distraction from the craziness of the year!
Crafting and making things are hobbies that most took up during lockdown as an escape, so this particular review and giveaway will definitely appeal! Read on to find out more about the recently launched, totally sustainable Build Your Own Microscope set and find out how you could win one!
Build Your Own Microscope Set
The newly launched eco-friendly cardboard microscope from Build Your Own Kits is a fantastic set for children (and adults) who love exploring nature and making things! Bar the two lenses and mirror piece included with the set, everything included, even down to the packaging is cardboard based. No worrying about unnecessary plastic ties that need cutting before you can enjoy the gift!
Instructions are very easy to follow, with directions to the corresponding cardboard pieces, making it much easier than an IKEA bookcase to put together! The steps are so easy to follow that Liv herself started off building the microscope on her own.
I would advise to set aside some time to build the microscope, but it’s a really fun project to get the whole family invovled with. With 54 press out parts, you will get great satisfaction when the finished product is ready! The set is really quite sturdy and handled correctly really will stand the test of time. Dimensions are 18.5cm wide by 27cm in height making it the perfect size to keep safe on desks, shelves or drawers.
Featuring 30x magnification, Autumn is the perfect time to start collecting leaves to analyse and view. Use the hand-held adaptor that you will also make to view items when you are out and about! The microscope features a light tube periscope with a zoom function, focusing dials and 30x magnification microscope… all built by you! Liv found it easier to use the torch function on a mobile phone that was placed underneath the microscope in order to achieve the correct light needed.
You can purchase the Build Your Own Microscope set from the Build Your Own site, currently priced at £16.99. It’s actually very reasonably priced, the quality is outstanding and you really do get longevity out of the kit. It’s fun for all ages, easy to use and understand and the building it yourself aspect really does make this a sustainable gift with a difference to give for Christmas!
