Have you ever heard of Sea Monkeys? The Easter Bunny brought each of my boys a set. The 12 year old left his in the package and the 6 year old and I started his Sea Monkey tank. After reading about the Sea Monkeys, we learned that they are Brine Shrimp.
The kit was very easy to set up and came with packets to prepare your water, eggs to start up your tank and food for the “Sea Monkeys.” The Sea Monkey eggs hatched and we messed up and fed them too early and many of them died. Then out of nowhere, we had more babies, so the Sea Monkeys definitely multiple very quickly! We have had a lot of fun watching the Sea Monkeys and are giving the other Sea Monkey set as a birthday gift for one of my youngest son’s friends.
The package says 6+ but my 12 year old was too old for these, so keep that in mind if you decide to buy one of these for a gift. The Easter Bunny brought these, but I have seen them in Wal-Mart and they were around $5.00. So be on the lookout for these and pick up a set the next time you need a unique birthday gift.
