When you need to busy your kids’ hands and their brains, one way to do just that is to let them conduct kids science experiments. Fun activities that also challenge kids to really think are the activities that promise to entertain and educate all at once. And those are the best kinds of activities for kids! Here are some fun and thought-provoking science experiments to challenge your kids.
Kids Science Experiments
School Science Fair Experiments
A lot of us may not think about kids science experiments until it’s time to come up with a project for the school science fair. If that’s you, I get it! But luckily for both of us, I’ve got a list of science fair project ideas to help you and your kids plan out the perfect one. There’s always the ever-popular flowing volcano!
Quick & Easy Science Experiments
For younger kids, these 5-minute science experiments may be just the perfect diversion for bored minds. They’re easy to do, but yield some seriously cool results! Grab some empty toilet paper rolls, gummy bears and food coloring–you’re going to need it all.
Science Experiments For Snackers
Got a bored and hungry kid on your hands? It’s time to break out the science experiments you can eat! There are tons of fun projects on this list, and all of them yield edible results. Take a look, because I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
DIY Slime Experiments
I’m including slime as a DIY science experiment, because kids love it SO much. Making slime gives kids a chance to learn about chemical reactions. For younger kids who may be tempted to eat what they make, try slime recipes you can eat.
Science Experiments For Kids & Adults
When you have time at home together, science experiments are fun for both kids and parents. It’s also a great idea to involve the kids in home repairs and projects. Show them the “science” behind what you’re doing–nothing like quality time spent working on a project together!
