10 Easy Science Activities for Kids
Kids will love making these Epsom salt crystals!
A classic for a reason, the bread mold experiment is simple and always has great results! My kids like to pretend to gag when they see mold, which is an added bonus.
This impressive science experiment teaches children about vortexes and makes them feel powerful by allowing them to create their very own tornado.
This surface tension experiment using milk and dish soap has surprising results!
This cornstarch quicksand was my kids’ favorite science activity that we did in this series. If you have large speakers, you can even make the cornstarch mixture dance!
A second favorite behind the cornstarch quicksand, my girls really loved making and playing with this slime. It’s a simple and fun lesson in how polymers are formed.
A classic for a reason, the baking soda and vinegar volcano experiment always has impressive results.
Another classic, turning a penny green is a fun way to show children how oxidation works in action. Monkey was convinced people used dye before we did this experiment.
This experiment was MY favorite. How cool is it to turn cream into butter? The girls also loved shaking up the jar until the butter was made.
We did this experiment last year,and it is still one of my favorites. This project even has a free printable you can print to make your experiment a little more advanced. Make sure to try all of these super fun science activities, and when you’re done with that, check out the rest of our STEM activity ideas!
