If you have kids and you post about them on Facebook, you’ve probably seen the online ads for a monthly arts and craft subscription service. For a small monthly fee, the company will send you a kit including all the supplies for a few craft projects and the instructions. Simply open the box, and you’re crafting with your kid.

Now imagine that same concept, oriented around electronics instead of arts and crafts. EEME¬†offers just that: for $18.95 a month, you’ll get all the parts for a simple, breadboard-based electronics project mailed to your home. Free video lessons are available online.

Past projects include a reed switch, lemon batteries, and an LED circuit that dims when other light sources are detected,¬†and glows bright when the room is dark. The EEME site claims parents need no background in electronics to help their kids complete the kits — they can learn right along with their children.
