Squishy Circuits

Squishy Circuits Kit

Squishy Circuits kits help kids learn about electric circuits.

Please watch the Squishy Circuits presentation prepared by Debbie Sternklar before using the kits.


14 Squishy Circuits boxes.

Each box contains:

  • One Battery Holder with red and black wires attached
  • One Piezoelectric Buzzer with red and black wires attached
  • One Mechanical Buzzer with red and black wires attached
  • One Electric Motor with red and black wires attached
  • 25 LEDs of various colors
  • Extra AA batteries
  • Sandwich bags
  • 2 Books:
    • Squishy Circuits by Kristin Fontichiaro and AnnMarie P. Thomas
    • Electricity Bulbs, Batteries, and Sparks by Darlene Stille


The salt in the conductive dough corrodes the terminals.  Please wipe the components and terminals with a wet cloth after using.

Put the non-working LEDs in the sandwich bags when returning.
