Sure, Valentine’s Day is all about sharing kind words and spreading the love. Yadda yadda yadda. That’s all wonderful and everything, but Valentine’s Day can also be much more exciting than opening a sappy card and sharing a box of chocolates. Get Little Hearts pumping with a bit more excitement this year by conducting some seriously LOVELY science experiments all related to the Day of Love. Here are Valentine’s Day science experiments for kids of all ages.
Finally! A good way to use those darned conversation hearts! For this Valentine’s experiment, test out how many hearts a custom-designed aluminum or paper boat can hold before sinking. Will a flat-bottomed or canoe shaped boat be stronger for this experiment all about surface tension? You can find bulk bags of conversation hearts and other candy on CandyStore.com.
