Customer Reviews

Loved it! Review by Bonnie

I have 3 boys and they loved the kit! We surprised them with all the water turning green and even the toilets turned green! They loved making the snow and it is great that we could reuse it in about 10 days. (Posted on 3/25/15)

Kids Loved It Review by Deb

My kindergarten students loved this kit. The top three activities were green Insta-Snow, the Worm Goo, and Color-Changing Beads. One student said, " This is the best science day." I will buy this kit again next year. (Posted on 3/24/15)

St.l Patrick's Day fun Review by Janet

This is the 3rd year I have used this kit for my kindergarten class. They love the leprechaun magic. We think and observe like scientists while we do these experiments. (Posted on 3/23/15)

Who had more fun, the kids or adults? Review by Melinda Ireland

This kit was a great routine breaker for my kindergarten Daisy Girl Scouts. They were ooohing, awwwwing and yukking with each activity. The parents were right there touching and smelling and whaaat, how'd you do that, too. The worm goo and snow were the biggest hits.I had a lot of fun sharing this kit with them and will be planning my next sick science day with them soon. (Posted on 3/23/14)

To catch a Leprechaun Review by Lynn

This is the second science kit our 9 year old daughter has gotten from Steve Spangler and it was just as fun as the first. She could not contain her excitement when she saw the box and proceeded to go through every experiment without stopping. Her favorite was the green snow which she used in her Leprechaun trap. It was a decoy to hide the try bottom of the box in hopes that the Leprechaun would get stuck. Alas, those little guys are full of tricks and eluded us yet again, but I know we had the most fun.

Lots of activities Review by Mary Kamoss

I am a science teacher currently teaching physics in a youth detention center. I am always looking for way to excite my students aout science. This kit is full of fascinating activities that have them talking about days after we have done them. The kit is so full of interesting stuff and good scientific explanations about what is happening and why. (Posted on 3/11/14)

LOT OF FUN!!! Review by Sarah Powell

The children in my class had so much fun with this kit! We even had a Leprechaun visit our room! (Posted on 4/7/13)

Leprechaun Science kit Review by Chris White

I used this kit to help convince my preschool class about leprechauns. They were convinced after I used the stuff in this kit. This kit also has everything you need to be a clever leprechaun. My class really loved the green snow. I would recommand this kit to any teacher or parent. Just another great steve spangler product (Posted on 2/9/13)

Fantastic Homeschooling Break Review by Kristie

Kristie received the Leprechaun Science Kit from Steve Spangler Science at no cost to her in exchange for a review. To read Angie's review in its entirety, please visit her blog - Spangler Science Team

Since we are a homeschooling family that is always looking for ways to break up the monotony of everyday schooling, I was thrilled to be able to offer this Leprechaun Science Kit from Steve Spangler Science to my son yesterday.

I knew he would totally be into it, and I was right.

What surprised me was that my sixteen year old daughter was into it just as much as my twelve year old son, and possibly even more. My son opened the cool paint can that everything came neatly packaged in and started looking through everything.

I can’t think of a better way to spend St. Patrick’s Day with your kids than by turning them loose on this Leprechaun Science Kit.

Get Your Kids Interested... Review by Michele

 As soon as I opened the box and my kids saw what it was, they were jumping up and down.  Steve Spangler Science makes learning about science really fun. My kids don’t even know they are learning, they think we are playing (shhhh, don’t tell).

[The Rainbow Glasses] look like ordinary 3D glasses, but my kids had several hours of fun with these glasses last night.

Watch [this] video and see how we created a cup of green snow. We just did a small cup full.

Leprechaun Science Fun From Steve Spangler Science Review by Angie

[This is] a ton of stuff for only $24.95.  What I love most about Steve Spangler Science is that all their kits come with enough supplies to do these experiments over and over again. 

The Green Leprechaun Snow was a big hit with the kids and even bigger when this momma realized that once the snow dries it's reusable. 

...seemingly boring white beads were my girls' favorite when we discovered that adding a little sunlight created beautiful rainbow bracelets!

The Worm Goo was also a big hit and probably my favorite. Add a little water and some green food coloring and you have instant worms!

We Loved It! Review by Cristina Swinnerton

I purchased this item to use with my Kindergarten students for St. Patrick's day. I told them my friend "Steve" had gone to Ireland and found a Leprechaun's home, although he wasn't fast enough to catch the leprechaun. Instead, he brought home several of the items he had found and shared them with me. They loved it! They decided we should try to see if the leprechaun eggs ever hatch if they aren't place in water, and we have several others still tightly sealed in a container with water so that if they hatch over the weekend, the leprechauns can't escape. They were very excited that I showed them how the leprechauns blow up their sandwich bag, and I added the rainbow glasses to the science centre. The biggest hit, though, were definitely the rainbow beads. I kept telling them they were going to build the most beautiful rainbow bracelet they had ever seen, and they kept insisting they were white. How amazed were they when we went out for recess and one at a time they started realizing their bracelets had changed! Even the parents wanted to know the magic! Thank you so much for helping make this day a great success!

Wonderful! Review by Kay Daughtry

I am a huge Steve Spangler science fan. I ordered the Leprechaun kit this year and had a wonderful time with all of the second grade classes (4) who are studying changes in matter. I had plenty of "stuff" to do some of the activities with my 3rd graders as well as put together a little magic for my principal's first grader.

The theme kits are wonderful.

Thank you so much for all you do. (Posted on 7/14/12)

Loved it Review by chris wittkopp

loved everything in the Leaprechaun kit. The kids still think the mischievious creatures hatched from the eggs and caused the mess in the classroom. (Posted on 6/29/12)

Leprechaun Kit Fabulous! Review by Kimberly

I almost never write reviews, but this kit is just so, so cute! The whole thing, from the adorable bucket packaging to the instructions to the projects themselves is done really well. My Kindergartener and 4th grader just took into school a plastic baggie with a little water and an "invisible leprechaun egg". They've got their 'show and tell' act all worked out. :-) It's just all fun, fun, fun.

The plotting begins! Review by Sybil Haas

As a teacher, I know the importance of encouraging curiosity. My son has been motivated to catch a leprechaun for the past year. This is right up his alley! The best part is that anything I don't use at home, I can take to show the kids in my primary classroom. Thanks for sharing this! (Posted on 3/6/12)
