IMG_20130924_143109_642

Magical Foaming Soap! Super Fun & Simple Science Experiment!   Here is a super fun and super easy science experiment you can for very cheap! This can be done with kids at any age! I have an 8 and 9 year old and so the science lessons can be adjusted to the appropriate age. You can make it just simple or go in depth and have them write in a journal about what is going on scientifically, however in depth you want to take these it will still result in the same ending which is FUN! My kids write what they are going to do, a hypothesis of what they think will happen, the process of what happened and a conclusion of the overall experiment and what went on with it. You can even get the crayons out and have them draw what happened and what it looked like to include some art as well. I like to take pictures and then print them out and the kids can paste those pictures into their journal so they don’t forget what the experiment looked like.   Magical Foaming … [Read more...]

Bubbly Foam! A Fun Science Experiment For Your Little One!   I used to do a version of this experiment (elephant’s toothpaste) at school growing up but it was done up at the front of class and we had to stand back and it just honestly isn't safe for little kids.

This is fun for the kids to see that they can make foam! Yes my kids decided to inspect the foam with their hand held magnifying glass as well. They could see a lot of tiny bubbles and that was super fun for them!   Bubbly Foam!   What you need – Empty water bottle Hydrogen peroxide Dish soap Packet of active yeast Food coloring Funnel Measuring cup   Directions –   (You might want to take this experiment outside or have the bottle in the middle of a cookie sheet because this will be foaming out … [Read more...]

Slithering Water Science Experiment! Now this is a super easy and cheap science experiment! This slithering water experiment takes some time depending on how tall your glasses are, so you can start it in the morning and leave it on the kitchen counter or washer and dryer and go back and observe throughout the day and evening. I had my kids write their observations down in their journal every time they went to observe the water slithering up and down! This is a two part science experiment. It wasn’t supposed to be but it turned out to be more than we thought which is always fun! Essentially this is using capillary action - To make the pictures come out better and for us to see the water go through the paper towel, we decided to color the water with purple food coloring which is where the next experiment took place.   Slithering Water   What you need: Two drinking glasses you can see through One paper towel or a half of one if you have big paper … [Read more...]
