Extra Parts Recommendations for 3 children

Microscopic Explorations is intended for two children working together, sharing the equipment. With the understanding that it's not necessary for each child to have all their own equipment, here are our minimum recommendations for adding a third child, so all three will have a good experience without waiting around. These recommendations assume that the children can share a little, but won't want to wait too long.

If you want 2 pocket microscopes for 3 children, consider getting:

Microscopic Explorations with 2 pocket microscopes

Then add:
1 slide trap

If you want 3 pocket microscopes for 3 children, consider getting:
