Think teaching kids about science requires a teacher and a laboratory? Think again. In fact, getting your child interested in science can be fun and easy, particularly if you start with some of these 24 fantastic science experiments for kids.
Want to teach them about the formation of crystals? Then make delicious rock candy in a variety of colors. Teach them about chemistry by making bouncy balls with borax and corn starch. Water absorption lessons can be performed with gummi candy.
Aside from providing science experiments for kids that are fun and easy for little ones to control and understand, many of these provide kids with the additional incentive of candy or toys after the experiment is done.
It’s also important to realize that you don’t have to wait to start science eduction. When I was four, my teacher taught us about how the primary colors created the secondary colors by mixing red, blue and yellow frosting together on a graham cracker. It was not only delicious, but something that stuck with me for the rest of my life.
