Tinker Crate is a subscription based service that offers a “laboratory for hands-on experiments delivered every month”.  Tinker Crate specifically focuses on experiments that are science, technology, and engineering based.  They are currently offering a LED Holiday Luminary box that we just had to order.  Normally they charge shipping for their single crate orders, but all holiday crates are shipping free from Koala Crate, Kiwi Crate, Doodle Crate, and Tinker Crate!  Pricing is as follows:

$19.95 for one LED Holiday Luminary box

There is a discount offered for multiple boxes purchased.
