25 amazing science experiments for kids

Since I have a 3 and 6 year old right now, these experiments are perfect! They absolutely love this kind of stuff. I really love this age where everything is totally magical and amazing and it’s so fun to watch them light up with joy.

Here are 25 pretty cool science experiments that will keep you busy for a long time to come. I especially like these because we are homeschooling our 6 year old right now. Perfect!

I think the first one we will try is the “make your own crystal geode”.

Here’s the link to all 25 ideas and Babble’s full article: Babble: 25 At Home Science Experiments

Lots of children will love science and can be inspired with a number of different experiments. These fun science experiments for kids can keep your kids interested in science. Read this guide of science experiments you can do with your kids at home.

Making Lava Lamps

It’s actually very easy to make lava lamps and it’s a perfect science experiment.

You will need:

– Vase or Glass Bottle
– Water
– Food Coloring
– Alka Seltzer
– Oil

Start by filling a bottle or vase with oil so that it’s 2/3 full. Then top the bottle up with water, but leave a couple of inches space at the top. Then put five drops of food coloring into the bottle. Then simply add a quarter of a tablet of alka seltzer, wait for the bubbles to slow and then add another quarter of a tablet. This creates a lovely lava lamp effect which kids will find fascinating. You can also get kids to experiment by adding different things to their lava lamp. Adding salt and sugar have different effects.

Make Jumbo Gummy Bears

Gummy bears are one of the most iconic sweets of all time. You can make a jumbo gummy bear extremely easily. To do this experiment you will need:

– Gummy Bears (Or any Gummy candy)
– Water
– Container

Gummy sweets and gummy bears are porous and this means that they can actually absorb water. The more water they absorb, the larger they will grow. Simply put the gummy bear inside a container of water and watch it grow. This will weaken the gummy bear which could allow it to become damaged easier.

Make a Bouncy Ball

You might be able to buy a bouncy ball in a dollar store, but it’s great fun to make your own. To do this, you will need:

– Borax
– Warm Water
– Food Coloring
– Cornstarch
– PVA glue
– Disposable spoon
– Measuring spoons
– 2 x Disposable cups
– Marker pen
– Watch
– Zip lock bag
– Ruler

Take your two disposable cups, and write ball on one, and borax on the other. In the borax cup, mix together half a teaspoon of borax with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Mix until all of the powder is fully dissolved in the water.

In the other cup labelled ball, pour in 1 tablespoon of glue. Then add half a teaspoon of your diluted borax from the other cup. Then add 1 tablespoon of water and leave for around quarter of a minute for the reaction to start. Once you have waited, stir to mix the ingredients together. When the mixture becomes thicker and you can’t stir it any more, take it out of the cup and start to mold it with your hands. It might be quite sticky to start off with, but should start to harden and become easier when you start molding.

  1. Wish I could figure out what the experiments are I click anywhere on the Page I’m sent to candles or some k-6 site

  2. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

  3. We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our
    community. Your website provided us with valuable information to work on. You have done a formidable job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

  4. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand
    so much approximately this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you simply can do with a few percent to drive
    the message home a bit, however instead of that, this
    is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  5. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your blog. It looks like some
    of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Many thanks

  6. Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such
    as yours take a lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog
    owners. Appreciate it!

  7. My brother recommended I may like this blog. He was once totally right.
    This submit actually made my day. You can not consider just how so much time I had spent for
    this information! Thanks!

  8. There are a lot of new development sales in the mix and those sales take longer – a lot of units marketed in one location entering the market at the same time.

  9. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever
    a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that
    service? Thank you!

  13. No where in the instructions for the Bouncy Ball craft do you explain what to do with the cornstarch or food coloring. We are trying to do this for a Science Fair at our school. Can you please explain? Thank you.
