Science things to make and do at home
50 Science Things To Make & Do by Georgina AndrewsI have a feeling that you can find most of these experiments and projects other places. Look on-line, etc. But I wanted one source that we could pull from (and I wanted to do less work, honestly. Im lazy).
Im marking this as read, even though well be utilizing it throughout the year (and possibly longer). This is a great little science book. My kids (ages 9, 7, and 4) get excited about what were doing. Its complicated enough to make it interesting, but simple enough to keep it engaging.
Some of the experiments have required us to purchase a few things, but most of them can be done with stuff we normally have around the house.
Youll need to plan to do these with your kids. Its too complicated for our kids, even our studious 9-year-old. Some of the experiments require a steady hand, for example. Or cutting things with a sharp knife.
Our favorite experiment to date: Extracting DNA from an onion. You should try it. Its cool.
50 Easy Science Experiments for Kids Using Household Stuff
Children are born scientists. They're always experimenting with something, whether they're throwing a plate of spaghetti on the wall, blowing bubbles in the bath water or stacking blocks into an intricate tower only to destroy it in one big swipe. As they get older, you may decide to enroll them in a FREE online coding class to get a leg up in today's digital world. But you can actually do some pretty mind-blowing, hands-on science experiments at home using stuff you probably have lying around the house. Don't worry if you never made it past biology: These 50 science activities are super-easy and a lot of fun to boot, as kids are exposed to a wide variety of scientific concepts. It's a great way to spend quality time together as a family and who knows, mom and dad may end up learning a new thing or two, too. Find more at-home fun in our Boredom Busters guide for families.
